Walk through the Madrid of the Austrias

Madrid began its true splendor with the Austrias, since it was under this dynasty that the city became the capital of Spain.

During the visit we will see the most emblematic places in Madrid: Plaza de Oriente, Viaduct, Vistillas, Plaza de San Andrés, Plaza de la Paja, Puerta Cerrada, Plaza de la Villa, calle Mayor, Mercado de San Miguel, Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sun.

We will get to know the history of the most relevant buildings and we will immerse ourselves, through history, in the environment of the 16th and 17th centuries (the period of the Austrian Dynasty in Spain).
