Description
The “Madrid de los Austrias” (Hapsburg Madrid) is the name given to one of the most tourist areas of downtown, where some of the most important monuments in the capital are concentrated. It is so named because it was built mostly during the reign of the House of Hapsburg or Habsburg dynasty. You could say that the Old Madrid is the most genuine, the most traditional Madrid. We will not make a history lesson in the strictest sense, but through amusing anecdotes and stories we will learn the characters and monuments of this important period for the city. This walking tour would take us about 2h and we can complement it with a visit inside the Royal Palace.The Royal Palace is one of the top tourist attractions in Madrid. Home to the Kings of Spain from Charles III to Alfonso XIII, Madrid’s Royal Palace takes us on a journey through the history of Spain. Though it is no longer the royal family’s home, it is a palace in use for the official activities of our Head of State, the king, as it continues to be their official residence. It replaced the former medieval Alcázar, which was burnt to the ground in 1734. Royal Palace of Madrid was decorated under the reign of Charles III, and is luxurious inside. During the route inside the palace we will enjoy the highlights including the magnificent Plaza de Armas, the main staircase, the Throne Room, the Gasparini Hall and the Royal Chapel among others. All the rooms are filled with beautiful examples of decorative art and furniture. The visit to the palace will take us about 1h and a half.
