Overview of the tour in Madrid

The Hispanic dynasty of the Habsburgs is characterized, among other things, because many of its members have lived well-known marital and extramarital love stories, which have given rise to many legitimate children and bastards; from the womanizer Felipe el Hermoso, married to poor Juana la Loca; even the insatiable Philip IV. Without forgetting the countless lovers that Felipe II.

Walking through the streets and squares of old Madrid, we will relive the stories and legends that bring us closer to the love affairs of Barbara de Blomberg, the Princess of Éboli or María la Calderona, and we will know the taste of Felipe II for the erotic paintings of Titian, or the supposed beating that Felipe IV received when the Duke of Albuquerque discovered him with his wife.

Finally, we will see in Calle Mayor, the monument that pays tribute to the victims of the attack that took place at the wedding of Alfonso XIII and Victoria Eugenia. Then we will go to the Plaza de la Villa, where we will know what famous French king was imprisoned in the Lujanes tower.

Thanks to this Arkeo Tour® route we will discover that the things of love have changed quite little in the last 500 years.

This activity includes:

  • Tower of the Lujanes
  • La Plaza de la Villa (Madrid)
  • Plaza Isabel II
  • Recorrido por el centro histórico de la localidad.
  • Guía acreditado experto en patrimonio.
  • Seguro de responsabilidad civil.

Things to note

The crisis caused by the coronavirus has forced all businesses to transform their products and services in order to offer the highest levels of safety, responsibility and quality to their customers.

Therefore, in accordance with state and regional regulations, from Arkeo Tour® we have implemented 6 essential and mandatory measures in all our activities:

1) Our guided tours are carried out only with small groups (maximum 6 people including the guide). In this way we achieve a better organization and management of the group, and a separation of at least 2 meters between each person.

2) Our itineraries have been designed to avoid possible crowds and escape from confined spaces. In addition, they are one-way routes to avoid crossing with other groups. Our guides coordinate live to share information on less crowded itineraries.

3) All our guides have been trained in health risk prevention and the fight against coronavirus. The person in charge of the guides and the person in charge of customer service make up the Arkeo Tour® risk management committee and carry out a daily monitoring of the safety measures.

4) In all our guided tours we use voice transmission and amplification equipment. In this way we guarantee the highest quality in the guide's explanations and we can maintain a safe distance between group members.

5) Our team uses approved masks in all our activities and is carried out in daily control of the temperature of each of the guides. Likewise, we will have hydroalcoholic gel for the use of all our users.

6) We have completely digitized the reservation service, thus avoiding the transfer of documents. The reservation confirmation can be downloaded from any mobile phone to show the guide at the beginning of the visit. The sending of brochures and information is now also done completely telematically.

Free Cancellation

You are free to cancel a booking anytime. We kindly remind you to cancel bookings you cannot arrive for. Being reported as absent decreases your customer level points and the benefits you can enjoy.
