Overview

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… Enjoy this city with us.

Amazing time!

I am studying abroad in Madrid and my mother who loves history wanted to do a fun tour. So we found this! It is a night tour lead by an amazing tour guide (ours was Elizabeth) who was energetic interested in learning about us and an amazing story teller! Definitely a fun tour for families , couples and friends!

Best Tour we had

Elizabeth was our tour guide; she was fantastic!! We took our two boys 12 and 13 years old; both of them enjoyed the tour. Great way to see the city at night and go down side streets.

The Highlight of Madrid, for Me.

Elizabeth, was our tour guide. WOW! We absolutely loved her. Her final performance had me in tears over what an amazing, fun tour this was. It was filled with great stories and history, and was absolutely the highlight of our trip to Madrid. I will tell anyone who goes to not miss a chance at taking this tour if they are in town. Could not have been better. I don't recommend taking very young children, as it is a walking tour of the city that lasts two hours, and is later at night. Also, we went at the end of December, and it was very cold (for reference: I was wearing a long sleeved shirt, a jacket, beanie, scarf, gloves, jeans, and sneakers, and was still cold). More of an older kids/adult tour. I also had a bit of confusion with the times (I had a couple tours booked and got the times mixed up), Mysterium tours was prompt and courteous with their email replies to me, even on a holiday week! I would take any of their tours in any other city. Totally exceeded my expectations. Thank you Elizabeth!! Thank you Mysterium Tours!!

What a great way to experience Madrid by night!

Elizabeth was a fantastic guide! Her stories brought the city of Madrid to life in a fun and exciting way. All the stops were very interesting and many were off the “beaten path” and places that you’d probably walk right past otherwise. We loved the tour and we’re looking forward to the Barcelona version when it arrives next month!
