Come with us on a journey through the rich history and artistic legacy that is to be found in the architecture, museums and galleries across the city of Madrid. The unique concept of Across Madrid was developed by art historian Dr. Almudena Cros, who has designed each walk to provide an experience of the highest quality. Expect to connect with new ideas, fresh themes, the latest interpretations, and depth of insight. Alongside this, Prof. Cros will ensure you have a flexible and fun experience, enriched by the latest insiders' tips and practical information.
Across Madrid’s thirteen different itineraries cover more than five centuries of Madrid’s history. We take you back to its origins and into its rich and complex present. Detail and perspective are brought together for a better understanding of the city. Each walk or Master Class can be customized to your needs and interests, depending on the size of the group.
Searching for the Bear of Madrid. This original treasure hunt sends children in search of a series of fantastic animals, characters and symbols, including the omnipresent emblem of the city: the Bear and Tree.
We reconstruct for you what the city centre looked like in the war with the help of photographs from that period and authentic materials recovered from that time, as well as a Madrid family's personal wartime story.
We explore the social changes that took place in Madrid between the age of Absolute Monarchy to the War of Independence from Napoleon’s occupying troops in 1808.
At Across Madrid, Dr. Cros delivers a unique experience, unlike any other tour you might have taken. You’ll be able to converse with a qualified academic during your exploration of the city, and so enrich your understanding of a wide range of cultural expressions and traditions in Madrid. We offer superb service, top-quality teaching and powerful, engaging insights.
You can book your walk in English, Spanish or Italian. We believe education should be affordable, so we offer special rates for students, senior citizens and families with more than 2 children. Please note that VAT tax is included in the price.
