Full description
Your experience begins as you go to the well-known Plaza Mayor, which although it may be hard to imagine today, witnessed some of the creepiest events in the history of Madrid. From there your tour continues to Plaza de Oriente (Eastern Square), where you will discover the reason behind its name. Afterwards, learn about the role played by freemasonry and secret societies in the current power configuration in Spain, before discovering the darkest side of Puerta del Sol where the Dos de Mayo Uprising against Napoleonic troops took place. This historic battle was immortalized by Goya in his famous painting, and you will also learn about the artist's unsettling connection to witchcraft. Afterwards, you’ll head towards the spooky House of the Seven Chimneys, from where you’ll walk to the Palace of the Marquises of Linares. For decades, unexplained noises have been heard within its walls. Unsolved crimes, tormented ghosts, strange paranormal phenomena are all concealed in the most unexpected corners, all of which will change the way you look at Madrid forever.

Our guide was really fascinating… BUT DIDN'T SPEAK FRENCH. The purchase was therefore not respected. I had to translate everything for my 12 year old son who doesn't speak Spanish or English. We decided to finish the tour before the end. But otherwise: very nice experience. Perfect if I had been alone.
