Convents & Theaters
Madrid's Golden Century

Walking Tour with local Mayte Embuena

In this tour we will stroll across the sceneries where in the XVII century writters  like Quevedo, Lope de Vega or Cervantes lived, loved and dwelt.

In the same quarter, today's "Literary Quarter", existed sixteen theaters, vast convents like Trinitarians, the actual burial grounds of Cervantes, and countless whorehouses.

TESTIMONIALS

A Maite foi uma das melhores guias que já conheci. Preparadíssima sobre questões históricas, políticas, econômicas e até a mais triviais, sempre com bom humor e disposição. Foi um prazer passar os dias em Madri com ela. Tanto que mantivemos contato até hoje. Certamente recomendo a todos e espero poder encontrá-la novamente um dia!

The tour was really interesting especially because the guide was able to communicate her love for Madrid. She was very professional and was able to let us live the real spirit and history of the town. Highly recommended.
