The Habsburgs and the Golden Age
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.
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.
