Madrid: Spanish Inquisition, Ghosts & Legends Evening Tour

1. Madrid: Spanish Inquisition, Ghosts & Legends Evening Tour

At dusk, when the sun sets over Madrid, shadows from the past stretch out like ancient ghosts to veil the city in the black of night, with only lanterns leading the way. During this walk through alleys and squares, you will explore hidden corners and hear facts and ghost stories, superstitions and old beliefs, as well as stories of hatred and persecution. This tour presents the dark side of the city and the folklore of the Los Madriles, told by an elegant narrator who will share with you the most intimate and atrocious aspects of the Spanish Inquisition. 

Madrid: Haunted City Exploration Game

2. Madrid: Haunted City Exploration Game

Discover highlights of Madrid while playing an engaging game on your phone. Follow clues and solve puzzles as you explore the city and learn more about it. See the Royal Basilica of Saint Francis the Great, the Real Church of Saint James and Saint John the Baptist, and more. Start the game at the Royal Basilica of Saint Francis the Great, and take on the role of Diego Velázquez, the greatest painter of the Spanish Golden Age. As you solve challenges, the story will unfold and exact directions on your phone will guide you to the next location.  It will take between 1.5-2 hours but you should explore at your own pace: simply pause the game and resume when you want from the location where you paused it.  You can play on your own, in a large group, or in several smaller groups that compete against each other before meeting at the final stop of the game, the Velázquez Monument (Prado Museum).

Our host David Onion was a great mix of historian, story teller, actor and comedian. His walking tour was the highlight of our trip to Madrid. We were surprised to experience in daylight how much ground we covered the night before on the ghost tour. David is also an educator and lite a spark for us to come home and find out more about the time of the Spanish Inquisition. Thank you David, we had a blast,

I super loved it! I took the Mysterium Tour at Madrid and it was so much interesting! Even though I'm a Spanish speaker, the guide's work was so good that I understood everything! I loved the customise acting and the all the legends and knowledge that this guy gave us only in two hours. It was so much wonderful, thank you for such and amazing experience.

Domenica was awesome. So entertaining. We enjoyed hearing both the legends and the history around the area. Walking around is great because it showed us places we did not know. Thank you to her and her assistant, they made our night!!

Perfect quick and dirty trip to explore a unique city while visiting Madrid. Tour was comfortable, guide knowledgeable and length was ideal. Our family made great memories for a lifetime.

A surprisingly fun and entertaining tour with a good mix of facts and tales.
