Habsburgs Madrid Walking Tour & Prado Museum Guided Tour
Habsburg is the name given to Madrid when the Habsburg dynasty reigned in Spain.
The journey through the Renaissance and Baroque style buildings of this era is perhaps one of the most picturesque and representative of Madrid.
The Plaza Mayor (Main Square), scenery of one of the main public acts of the time, is one of the monuments that best define Hapsburgs Madrid. A must in this tour, together with La Puerta del Sol (Gate of the Sun), another key area from where the streets Mayor and Arenal are born, which held many palace residencies of the time.
You will continue your visit arriving to the Palacio Real (Royal Palace), one of the most beautiful and best preserved palaces in Europe. It was built during the XVIII century on the ancient Alcázar de Los Austrias, a political-administrative centre of the time and symbol of the continuation and consolidation of Madrid as the political Capital of the Kingdom. The Oriente, Cebada and Paja plazas will also tell you their secrets and history.
During the tour, we will stop at one of the most emblematic Cafés of this popular area of Madrid, where you will be offered a drink.
Next, you will enjoy a guided tour at Prado Museum, opened to the public for the first time in November 1819.
The Museum's first catalogue, published in 1819, included 311 paintings, although at that time its collection comprised just over 1,510 pictures from the various Reales Sitios (Royal Residences).
Nowadays you can contemplate in the Prado Museum greatest masterpieces as The Garden of Earthly Delights by Bosch, The Nobleman with his hand on his Chest by El Greco, Las Meninas by Velázquez and The Family of Carlos IV by Goya.
