Hello! We are Félix and Rafa, together we have founded Maño Tours so that you feel like a friend who has come to visit us. Félix is ​​a true craftsman and graduated in "Art History" from the University of Zaragoza. He has been around the city since his childhood, so he knows every nook and cranny. For some time now he began taking tours of its historic center, in which he combines his knowledge of the city with his artistic knowledge, resulting in enjoyable and interesting tours. Rafa is originally from Cabo de Palos, he studied "Guiding, information and tourist assistance" at the Cartagena hotel school and has been guiding in Europe since 2013. In these 11 years he has made guided tours in European capitals such as Prague, Madrid, London and Amsterdam. Love, destiny and the birth of his son Maño have taken him to Zaragoza to share the other point of view: that of a stranger who finds his place in the fourth largest city in Spain. Combining Rafa's experience and the knowledge of Zaragoza from a local like Félix, we have created this tourism company to share our love for Zaragoza with you. Discover Zaragoza with us!

Tour description

Do you want to know the legends and mysteries that surround the ancient city of Zaragoza? Do you want to know the stories of conquest and power that made the Crown of Aragon great?

Then join me on this 2-hour tour in which you will be terrified and amazed by the history of the city.

You will learn the story of San Pedro Arbués, a saint who was not a saint, or that of Uncle Candiola, a traitor who tormented the city even after his death. You will be fascinated when you discover that elves exist, and that they are anything but charming. You will be fascinated by the stubbornness of the people of Zaragoza, which led us to carry out the first uprising against the Austrian monarchy and defeat the most powerful army in the world. You will see churches burned down for a greater good, and you will be stunned to hear the true story of Saint George and the Dragon. We will walk together to the Pilar, and there you will learn the story of the virgin and the miracles that made her so beloved among the people of Zaragoza, but you will also learn the bloody story of Santa Engracia, the saint whom the virgin of the pillar overthrew as the depositary of our faith. . We will cross the stone bridge, the oldest in the city, and we will stand next to a well in the Ebro that hides hundreds of corpses and that according to legend communicates directly with the Mediterranean. We will pass under an arch built by the devil and we will lose our soul.... All this and more in a tour from which you will surely not leave indifferent.
