This tour reveals in several secret spots the origin of the city, it is a very nice tour in which you will see a lot of places and monuments scattered on a route that runs through the old heart of Madrid or ''Magerit''. It is a city of 1200 years of history that began in a small Arab fortress and has ended up being one of the most metropolitan cities in the world with approximately 3 million people. How has it evolved so much? Find out with Rubens. Few cities in the world have an evolution as varied as 'Magerit'. Although it is a route based on the Madrid of the Austrias, you will see places of the early days of Madrid when it was a small village, you will also see buildings after the monarchy of the Austrias as the Royal Theatre.
