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 and legends, 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.

Very cool mystery tour
We took the tour with my teenage son. The guide was Liam. A very nice tour, Liam was dressed as 18th-century European gentleman. His stories were well told, he was spooky (as he should) but not scary.... His pace is good and you have time to take photos of the sites in the night. Each story is in the right length, tells all the spooky details but not too long. Prices are fair. Very good service for money. Overall, very recommended
