Madrid Original ® proposes a walked guided tour through Habsburgs’ Madrid consisting of Austrian rulers period (1515-1700) monuments (palaces, churches and convents) around the most representative of them all: the Plaza Mayor (“the Great Square”) with its impressive bronze statue of king Philip III. The Palace of Uceda, the Chapel Saint Isidro and Carboneras Convent would be other major points of interest on our itinerary. Booking in advance would allow entry to interesting spaces usually closed to the public.
This tour could be complemented another day with a second 2-hours tour to religious architecture of Habsburg period around the two main convents of the 17th century: Descalzas Reales and Convento de la Encarnación. Other interesting, half-hidden convents and churches, would be examined during our tour.
A third 2-hours tour to religious architecture of Habsburg period could be considered for another day with a series of late-Baroque churches (from San Hermenegildo to San Cayetano) closely linked to important characters of Spanish history, art and literature.
