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 GOSSIP FREE TOUR

Discover the history of Madrid as told by the service of the Court of the Habsburgs , Quevedo's bar comrades, the prisoners who charged against the Mamluks; centuries of traditional gossip that make up the intrahistory of the streets of Madrid:

  • Sun Gate
  • Main Square
  • Cutlers Arc
  • San Miguel Market
  • town square
  • La Almudena (it's horrible, we skipped it)
  • Royal Palace


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

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