Things to do The Spanish Inquisition Free Walking Tour

Join us and figure out the bloodiest stories of Spain with our Spanish Inquisition Free Walking Tour.

With the company of our Spanish speaking guide, we will unfold the darkest stories of the Spanish Inquisition about torture, suffering and death hidden between the streets of Madrid.  

Relive those horrific times when the prisoners marched through the gloomy streets of the city under the sound of tambors towards death.

We will visit Plaza Mayor, Calle Mayor and Plaza de la Villa, relevant places that served as scenario to the well-known “autos-da-fé” (acts of faith), executions and punishments that the Inquisition imposed to heretics and prisoners.

Subsequently, we will continue towards Plaza Mayor, one of the main squares in the city located in the old town. We will visit Plaza de los Herradores, and the Monasterio de las Descalzas Reales, where predominate the Renaissance and Plateresque styles. We will then walk along Calle Felipe III and the popular Calle de la Amargura.

Also, we will contemplate the Plaza de Santo Domingo, where the dungeons were located, and the Antigua Judería (the old Jewish quarter), such a jewel where the Jewish community had its origins. We will also explore the Plaza de la Cruz Verde, a significant place where executions during the Spanish Inquisition took place, and the Casa del Pastor, in the area of La Latina. This boasts in its façade the oldest Coat of arms of Madrid. Here, we will also reveal the most curious stories and legends hidden between its walls.

Don’t miss out the opportunity to learn everything about this period with our historic experience, and uncover the truth behind the tragic legends with our Spanish Inquisition Free Walking Tour.
