Tour description

Historical tour. Recommended for people over 16 years old.
An unbeatable excuse: a walk through El Retiro park to talk about Queen Juana I of Castile

  1. Why did they call her "the Crazy"?
  2. Why was she locked up until the end of her days?
  3. How did her contemporaries judge her?
  4. How did history judge her?


We invite you to take a look at this historical review while we walk through beautiful places in the city of Madrid.
