The Madrid of the Austrias | Guided tour with Mayte Embuena

Walk on foot through the historic center of the city, starting from the Plaza de Oriente, with the same Sierra de Guadarrama that Velazquez painted as background, and from the convent of the 16th century that served as a residence for queens and princesses.

We will walk the main street, the medieval markets, the squares, meeting places, venues of celebrations on foot, to reach the neighborhood where the old theaters of the 16th century, home of the writers of the Golden Age were raised. We will finish our tour in front to the tomb of Cervantes.
