The Black Legend of the Spanish Inquisition


Free ticket for the 2-hour tour


€ 20.00 Adult

Bookings should be made in advance by phone or email.

Tours operate on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays all year long. Starting times: 20.15 tours in Spanish, 20.30 tours in English, 20.45 tours in Italian.

Meeting point: Plaza de la Provincia – few meters away from Plaza Mayor. Meet your Storyteller holding a lantern at the small fountain.

The tour runs in all weather conditions. It is recommended to dress appropriately in winter and to wear a raincoat or bring an umbrella in case of rain.

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 and hear 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…

This tour does NOT include access to the interior of sites visited. No “jump scare” actors; we rely on the professional storytelling skills of our guides.
