The Madrid of the Bourbons and the Enlightenment.
I am Diego Barrios Canora, creator of a small tourism company (Barrios de Madrid). My love for the city I live in, the country where I was born, and the history, art and culture of both, has been the engine that drove the development of this project. I hope you will join me on this vertiginous and encouraging journey through the history of Madrid, its streets, its citizens, its traditions... I am an official tourist guide and a friend of the Royal Economic Society of Matritense Friends of the Country (RSEMAP). Regarding my studies, I am a senior technician in Tourist Information and Marketing, graduated in Law and I have a master's degree in Planning and Management of Tourist Destinations. In addition, I took the PREDIF course on Accessible Tourism for All People.
The walk through the Madrid of the Bourbons and the Enlightenment allows us to remember a time of certain progress, and optimism at different levels, of the town. The best and most unknown civil, religious and aristocratic buildings will be shown on our tour.
With us you will be able to know the most representative monuments and know why Carlos III is named as "the king mayor" ; the literary trends that were flourishing or the political changes, sometimes convulsive, as Esquilache felt in his own flesh.
What was the attitude of the residents of Madrid towards these events? What is what we know as the “age of lights”? A Madrid that I assure you that you do not know.
NOTE. It is important that each assistant bring headphones since the visit will be carried out with a radio guide.
