Things to do Love and legends in Los Austria Court

Love has always been one of the main engines of history.

Numerous interpersonal relationships between important figures of the Court or of the Government have provoked passions, hatreds, rivalries and conspiracies in the past that have affected the course of future events.

The Hispanic dynasty of the Habsburgs is characterized, among other things, because many of its members have lived well-known marital and extramarital love stories, which have influenced their royal lives and given rise to many legitimate children and bastards; from the womanizer Felipe el Hermoso, married to poor Juana la Loca; even the insatiable Felipe IV and his famous relationship with the actress María Calderón; without forgetting the countless lovers that Felipe II hid under his austere and pious king's facade.

As if it were a true set of Save me from the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries, in this guided tour we will learn about the most lustful and stormy relationships of some of our most famous characters.

Walking through the alleys and squares of old Madrid, we will relive the stories and legends that bring us closer to the love affairs of Barbara de Blomberg, the Princess of Éboli or María la Calderona, and we will know the taste of Felipe II for the erotic paintings of Titian, Juana I's attacks of jealousy towards her own ladies, the endless parties between women, wine, music and games that made Felipe III almost drown the royal coffers or the supposed beating that Felipe IV received when the Duke of Albuquerque discovered him with his wife

Thanks to this route we will discover that the things of love have changed quite little in the last 500 years.
