Sometimes we get so used to strolling around the same areas and seeing the same buildings and streets that we forget to keep an eye out for secret corners and pay attention to the fascinating history they share. We walk past little plaques without reading them, not realizing that they are donned by buildings in which renowned figures like Cervantes, Juan Gris and Federico García Lorca once lived. But I love to take a close look at these kinds of things!
The best way to discover these little hidden gems is to let yourself be guided by someone who really knows his stuff. And that’s exactly what you’ll be doing if you sign up for one of the Official Guided Tours run by Madrid Visitors & Convention Bureau. They offer a total of 40 tours on different themes and some are available in other languages: English, French, Italian, German, Portuguese, Dutch and Japanese.
So next time you’re in Madrid make sure you sign up for one and discover the city from a completely new perspective!
