About This Tour

Spanish Inquisition & Legends of Madrid

At dusk, when the sun sets over Madrid, spectres 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.
