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.

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.

I took the Madrid tour with David, and he never broke character or skipped a beat! Super knowledgeable and engaging, checking in to ensure everyone was feeling okay with walking and had places to sit. It was a really top notch experience and if you’re considering it I’d recommend the tour!

wonderful guide who really drags you into the story, the stories are also interesting and fun. What is also a surplus, this tour is child-friendly and ideal to do with your family. We had some curious kids in the group, great how the guide handled that. Ps if you ever made a theater show I would come and see it and that is meant as a big compliment! Top activity I recommend it
