Description

Join me on this live-streamed Online Experience to explore Madrid like never before. We will begin our tour from the Plaza Mayor or Main Square, located in the heart of the city. Making our way to the Casa de la Panadería (Bakery House), we will learn more about its royal boxes and the hundreds of stories of all kinds of events in its 400-year history: from coronation ceremonies and bullfights to public executions!

Next will be a visit to the outstanding Cava de San Miguel - the former walls of the city - and to the oldest restaurant in the world. Walking in some of the nicest and most quiet squares in Old Madrid, we will learn how to get sweets at a nun convent. 

Walking on, see the Plaza De la Villa (City Square), and marvel at how the incredible history of architecture of 3 hundred years unfolds in just one little spot right here. Cross the Calle Mayor or the Main Street to admire the Cathedral of Almudena, which is dedicated to the patron virgin of the city. To end our tour with a bang, we will pay a visit to the magnificent Royal Palace, the biggest Palace built in the eighteenth century in Europe.

I look forward to showing you around my city virtually!
