Madrid is not only the colorful capital of sunny and welcoming Spain. This city is filled with forgotten historical sites, and some of them are even infamous. I offer you a special tour of these "sights", which few know about, and those who know, bypass.

The tour will consist of two stages:
At the beginning, we will meet in the city center (at Puerta del Sol) and head towards non-tourist destinations, and along the way you will see all the key attractions such as the Royal Palace and Sabbatini Gardens, Plaza Mayor, Plaza de España, Egyptian Temple and the Ruins of the Arab Fortress), and I will definitely tell you about them
Further, at the second stage of the excursion, all the most interesting and mysterious will begin! We will go where tourists don’t look for various reasons: they don’t know how to get there, they don’t realize that there are such places, or they simply try to bypass them). You will see the bridge of suicides, the avenue of roses, the cemetery of the heroes of the uprising against the French in 1808, the ceramic school opened by one of the students of Francisco Goya, the church, the dome of which was painted by Goya himself and where he is buried. I will tell you where the last line of defense of Madrid was during the Spanish Civil War with its defenses. Then you will stroll through the wonderful park and see its abandoned alleys, once very beloved by Madrid residents
My stories and approach are devoid of academicism, and the historical and cultural component is reduced to a minimum. Please keep this in mind when choosing my excursions.
- Before going on an excursion, I highly recommend putting on comfortable shoes (heels are not welcome), stock up on strength (a hearty breakfast or lunch) and always water
- Additional costs: metro (6 euros); snack (pizza, sandwich - 2-4 euros); water (about 1 euro)
