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.

Our host David Onion was a great mix of historian, story teller, actor and comedian. His walking tour was the highlight of our trip to Madrid. We were surprised to experience in daylight how much ground we covered the night before on the ghost tour. David is also an educator and lite a spark for us to come home and find out more about the time of the Spanish Inquisition. Thank you David, we had a blast,

The tour was extremely enjoyable and a great way to see some of the coolest sites in the city. Isa was a compelling storyteller and a great tour guide. I would definitely recommend for both first time visitors and any repeat visitors that haven't had a chance to hear some of the darker side of Spanish history.

Our guide Isa was a great storyteller and such a kind person! The tour was informative about the history of Madrid and the Spanish Inquisition while still including many ghost stories and legends about the area as well. I would definitely recommend this tour!
