What you'll do

Madrid is full of myths and legends but only some of them have a real background. Together we will examine a house of a merchant of that period(medieval Madrid), a small palace, a museum and much more and we will examine the historical context of the period and how this environment created the myths of modern Madrid. Together we will walk for 2 hours in the heart of Madrid and we will examine the myths and legends of the city. Haunted buildings and hospitals, streets with history hidden inside their name, and we will discuss the most popular urban legends of Madrid and Spain. As they say, where is smoke there is fire so we will examine the historical context of the myths and we will try to break them down. Every one of them has more than one version so together we will examine what is the spectrum we use to interpret with legends. During those 2 hours, we will be in continuous movement and we will start from the heart of the city the Puerta del Sol and we will finish in Plaza Mayor. We will make in total 6 stops to talk about legends and we will make as many as you need if you want to get rest.
