Quality Verified Registered on July 07, 2022

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.

Tour description

Madrid, an old place with limited importance, became, in a few years, the center of the Hispanic monarchy, the one on which the sun never set.

On this tour, we will not only show you its civil and religious buildings ; In addition, we will teach you the daily life of its people, the debates of the intellectuals, the topics of interest in gossip or the fashions of the time.

Why is it known as the "Golden Age"? What opinion did other States have about us?

NOTE. It is important that each assistant bring headphones since the visit will be carried out with a radio guide.
