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. No “jump scare” actors; we rely on the professional storytelling skills of our guides.

Este tour te atrapa desde el principio y te hace retroceder al Madrid mas misterioso por momentos. Es increible la de historias y misterios que hemos aprendido en este tour. La caracterización de los personajes es maravillosa. 100% Recomendable.

Travel back in time

If you wish to travel in time and live the experience of the Spanish Inquisition, then this is the right tour for you! For two hours you will be fully immersed in the "Madrid de los Austrias", walking through cobbled streets, dark alleys and ancient squares, hearing legends, mysteries and some of the city's most terrifying stories. We booked the tour in Italian and Renato was not only a very professional guide but also a quite talented actor, able to captivate the audience and convey strong emotions. The tour is absolutely recommended, as it offers the opportunity to see an unusual face of Madrid.
