Description

Appreciate the architectural and cultural diversity of Madrid on this guided tour of its historic city centre. Explore the literary quarter of Barrio de las Letras, where famous writers and artists once lived, and admire noteworthy monuments built during the Bourbon Dynasty.

Your tour starts in Barrio de las Letras, once the home and popular meeting place of renowned Spanish writers such as Cervantes, Lope de Vega and Calderón de la Barca. See old inscriptions from these prominent artists along the district's narrow streets and spot one of Hemingway's favourite bars. The district is now a popular nightlife area with many trendy cafés and restaurants.

As you follow your guide to Madrid's famous attractions, learn how the arrival of the Bourbon Dynasty in the 18th century brought a major urban transformation to the city. Marvel at the Royal Palace – the official residence of the royal family – the Alcalá Gate (Puerta de Alcalá), one of the symbols of the city, and the emblematic fountain of Cibeles and the fountain of Apollo, also known as the Four Seasons.
