The Spectres of the Spanish Inquisition

(Ghosts & 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…

Mysterium Tours does NOT craft typical guided tours for tourists; these are immersive storytelling experiences about history, local legends and tales not always associated with the building we stand in front of.

A few tips on how to properly enjoy the tour:
Put aside your phone and the modern way of seeing things; let yourself be carried away by the stories and facts that will be dramatically told and follow each step carefully. Open your mind and play with your imagination; this will provide you with a glimpse of the past, a glance into the darkest aspects, born from the superstition of the old times gone by.
