Austrias Free Tour - History and Gossip

Duration: 1h and 45min
Languages: Spanish
Guru: Ceci
Registered on November 15, 2021

"I just wanted to be an actress, and I ended up being a lawyer for 30 years." As a departure from a film by Almodóvar or Paco León, La Ceci takes to the streets of Madrid to share, not only her passion for history and folklore -to which she dedicated her leisure time of those 30 years-, but the anecdotes and versions of events that do not go into the books.

Tour description

LA CECI - HISTORY AND COTILLEO FREE TOUR

Discover the history of Madrid as it would be told by the service of the Court of the Austrias , Quevedo's bar companions, the inmates who charged the Mamluks; centuries of traditional gossip that make up the intrahistory of the streets of Madrid:

  • Sun Gate
  • Main Square
  • Cuchilleros Arch
  • San Miguel Market
  • Villa Square
  • La Almudena (it's horrible, we skipped it)
  • Royal Palace


At the end of the tour, La Ceci will be able to recommend places "of the real ones" to have an aperitif.

This tour is for Madrileños, for adoption Madrilenxx, for non-Madrilenx and for anyone who is prepared for the politically incorrect version of history.

Es un encanto de mujer, nos lo hemos pasado muy bien y lo más importante en estos casos, nuestro nivel cultural ha engrandecido, con sus explicaciones, constructivas y estructuradas en un nivel cultural exquisito, deseando volver a otro freetour con ella, lo recomiendo al 100%.
