About This Tour

Spanish Inquisition & Legends of Madrid

At dusk, when the sun sets over Madrid, specters from the past stretch like long shadows, veiling the city with stories of hatred and persecution. On this evening tour, a lantern will guide your way through the cobbled alleys and squares of the “Madrid of the Habsburgs”, passing by churches, monasteries, and places where jails and gallows once stood. As you explore the most infamous corners of the city, you will learn gruesome historical facts, hear legends and chilling ghost stories, told by the voice of an elegant narrator, who will also share the most intimate, atrocious, and untold aspects of the Spanish Inquisition, that Holy Tribunal that so often led to a knock at the door under the cover of darkness…


An in-depth journey into the dark days of the Spanish Inquisition.

Embark on a journey into the Legends and Ghost Stories of Madrid.

Let yourself be guided by a professional storyteller in period costuming.

Walk with us through the less travelled routes of the old Madrid.

Our Guides

El Tablao De la Villa (Dinner and Flamenco Show)

The Tablao de la Villa offers pure and authentic flamenco, in a 19th-century house palace located in the historic center of Madrid.
Our tablao is a meeting place for fans and artists, where traditional flamenco art makes its way, in which dance that knows how to stop appears, and guitar and cante that know silences.
The dim light, the proximity to the artists, the excellent visibility and the unique acoustics complete the magical atmosphere of this flamenco tavern and guarantee an unforgettable experience of flamenco passion and depth.

The Spanish tavern is located right where our Spanish Inquisition and Legends of Madrid tour ends, near the Royal Palace; so why not add a memorable dinner and traditional flamenco show to your Mysterium Tour?
