Description

At dusk, when the sun sets over Madrid, spectres from the past stretch like long shadows, veiling the city with stories of hatred and persecution. On this evening tour, a lantern will guide your way through the cobbled alleys and squares of the Madrid of the Habsburgs, passing by churches, monasteries and places where jails and gallows once stood. As you explore the most infamous corners of the city, you will learn gruesome historical facts and hear chilling ghost stories, told by the voice of an elegant narrator, who will also share the most intimate, atrocious and untold aspects of the Spanish Inquisition, that Holy Tribunal that so often led to a knock at the door under the cover of darkness…

This tour does NOT include access to the interior of sites visited.

Great tour, very informative
Great tour guide, very informative. Very theatrical which made you feel you were actually back in the times of when the events happened and it added that extra spook appeal.

Awesome after dark tour
We enjoyed it very much! We were three friends plus another couple. Our guide Liam was very interesting and very theatrical. Dressed from the past, he told us many stories and legends and took us through beautiful streets despite the cold and the snow. I totally recommend it for an after dark tour, giving you a chance to see the monuments without any tourists.

Great storyteller in a beautiful setting of Prague
Great storyteller in a beautiful setting of Prague at night. Walking on narrow streets down to hidden squares to finally reach the Jewish Cemetery and the Great Clock Tower. Definitively a worth experience. The guide knows how to create the right atmosphere using voice, acting and music. Stories are a powerful mix of facts and legends, therefore giving you useful historical references then elaborated to gives you the creeps just at the right moment in the right place. Very enjoyable.
