Learn about the history of the Habsburgs, who reigned over Spain during the 16th and 17th centuries. On a small-group walking tour of Madrid, you'll admire the Renaissance and Baroque architecture and take a tour of the Royal Palace with your guide.
What to Expect
Discover the Madrid of the Habsburgs on a 4-hour small-group walking tour. The Habsburg dynasty began in Spain with the reign of Charles I, who enriched the city by building palaces and monuments.
Later, Philip II declared Madrid the capital of Spain, leading to the city’s dramatic growth. Admire the Renaissance and Baroque style buildings that are perhaps some of most picturesque and representative of Madrid.
Stop for a break at a traditional café in this popular area of the city, and enjoy a complimentary drink.
The Royal Palace was built in the 18th century in the Italian Baroque style and is one of the most beautiful and best-preserved palaces in Europe.
The palace was the official residence of the Spanish Monarchy from 1765 to 1931. To date, the most prestigious receptions of the Spanish Crown are celebrated here, including audiences, dinner parties, signings of important agreements, and the presentation of credential letters of foreign ambassadors to His Majesty the King.
