Things to do Essential Madrid Tour

This indispensable route will take us to the most iconic places in Madrid, where history and present-day go hand in hand.

We will start at the famous Museo del Prado, where our walking tour will take us to see the Neptune Fountain, the Paseo del Prado, and the Ritz and Palace Hotels. The tour will continue along the Carrera de San Jerónimo to visit the famous Congress of Deputies.

Next, we will dive into the picturesque Barrio de la Letras, where we will find treasures such as the house of Cervantes. We will walk through its streets full of stories, heading towards the Plaza de Santa Ana, recalling the Romantic Madrid of the 19th century.

Continuing our journey, we will visit the famous Puerta del Sol and get to know the true heart of the city. Next, we will travel through Habsburg Madrid to the Plaza Mayor, where we will learn about the oldest corners of the city. In this area with its small streets and centuries of history, we will see the old City Hall, the Plaza de la Villa, and the oldest churches in Madrid.

The highlight of our tour will be the Almudena Cathedral and the Royal Palace, which we can visit afterward.
