ROYAL PALACE + OLD TOWN WALKING TOUR
Enjoy the Royal Palace & a pleasant walking tour of Old Town
This 90-minute guided tour will show you its fascinating history, architecture, art and legends.
The amazing Royal Palace of Madrid is the largest in western Europe. The palace was the official residence of the Spanish Royal family for almost 200 years and is still used today for Court ceremonies and official entertaining. You will feel like a king walking with me through the State Rooms and the Royal Armory. After visiting the Royal Palace we’ll continue on to a nice stroll to explore the Old Town. Madrid treasures its historical area, we call it “castizo”, meaning ‘authentic’, in which, fortunately, we have the pleasure of living. Let us show you our neighborhood, its narrow streets and pedestrian areas, its legends and hidden gems.
If you like history, this is your tour. We are history experts and what we love most about this tour is telling you about our history, our past and our present. By the end of the day you too will feel like an expert on Madrid.
The tour is done entirely on foot and, if you feel like resting and relaxing for a while, we might as well take a break. There are many nice bars and taverns in this area.
The Old Town is known as “Madrid de los Austrias” (Habsburg Madrid). This historical area gets its name from the monuments located here which date back to the 16th and 17th XVI and XVII centuries, when the Habsburgs ruled Spain.
“Madrid is brimming with literature, poetry and music on all four sides, so much so that it is itself a literary character” Ernest Hemingway.
