Full description
At dusk, when the sun sets over Madrid, shadows from the past stretch out like ancient ghosts to veil the city in the black of night, with only lanterns leading the way. During this walk through alleys and squares, you will explore hidden corners and hear facts and ghost stories, superstitions and old beliefs, as well as stories of hatred and persecution. This tour presents the dark side of the city and the folklore of the Los Madriles, told by an elegant narrator who will share with you the most intimate and atrocious aspects of the Spanish Inquisition.

    We returned delighted with our visit. Our guide, Elizabeth, knows her subject very well. She conveyed the information in detail and played the characters she spoke to us very well. With the drizzle falling, it added to the gloomy side of the talk. We were a group of 8, perfect for this kind of activity.
