Tour description

RECOMMENDED FOR OVER 16 YEARS OLD.

THE TOUR STARTS ON TIME.
We propose to make a private visit. Join us on this historical visit, touring the places that still have some memory of those dark years in which the Court of the Holy Office exercised its power in the city of Madrid. Who were his victims? How was the society that lived between terror and magic that characterizes the fascinating sixteenth and seventeenth centuries? Were there witches in the city of Madrid? How were the autos de fe of the capital?
We will approach this story from another angle, our protagonists are the witches and sorceresses , how was a witch recognized and why were they condemned?
To answer these questions we must know both the figure of "the witch", as well as the society that created it...
Tour stops:

  • Santo Domingo Square
  • C/ Torija. Supreme Council of the Inquisition
  • Monastery of the Incarnation
  • Last stop: Plaza Mayor


**RECOMMENDED FOR OVER 16 YEARS OLD
