Continuing towards the Plaza de La Nogalera we will arrive at the mythical Pasaje Begoña , at the height of such a journey through time, since entering it means going through the timeless tunnel that we propose, thus ending the visit in the Plaza Costa del Sol among murals of myths of the time.

The tour was in fact a statement about the change in Spanish culture from General Franco's rule to a state of democracy. The people who drove the social experiment and empowered the change. Very interesting. It also provided info on 4 places we subsequently visited separately which we probably wouldn't have without this tour. Excellent, thanks Charlie.
