We start the tour at the iconic Puerta del Sol , where we talk to you about King Carlos III, the Royal Post Office, Oso(a) y Madroño, Km Cero, etc. After a short walk, we continue towards the iconic Plaza Mayor , where you will be fascinated by all its history, then we go down Toledo Street towards Cuchilleros Street and there we stop at the oldest restaurant.

We continue climbing and the route takes us to a gastronomic icon temple: El Mercado de San Miguel , a place where you can eat the best delicacies from the entire Iberian Peninsula.
