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

¿Mamelucos por las calles de Madrid? ¿Gritos a las armas del pueblo madrileño? ¿Daoiz y Velarde? Todo esto y mucho más será desvelado en este tour. 

Narraremos las horas decisivas en las que el pueblo de Madrid se levantó contra el invasor, contra la Grande Armée, contra el ejército imperial de Napoleón Bonaparte. 

Además, explicaremos la opinión de militares y civiles con respecto a la ocupación francesa: ¿quiénes fueron los afrancesados, unos traidores o unos idealistas? ¿Fue el 2 de mayo un acto planificado o espontáneo?
