Enlightening Spanish Civil War tour.. cannot recommend it highly enough
Almudena has a passion for her subject which is infectious. Although I did this tour on my own, and therefore had her undivided attention, I believe it would be just as intimate with a small group.
If you even only have a passing interest in history, or understanding how a city can suffer, then I cannot recommend this tour highly enough.
Open a window to History
Almudena Cros provided a comprehensive historical context for the war that gripped Spain in the late 1930s. She supplemented her incisive narrative with historical pictures comparing them to contemporary views and she added personal family anecdotes that made the past come alive.
It was especially meaningful to me, the son of an international volunteer who fought on behalf of the Spanish Republic, to see some of the places where the battle for Madrid unfolded and to hear their story told by someone who values their sacrifices.
I highly recommend Across Madrid Tours for visitors wanting to discover little known aspects of this important history.
Top tour on the Spanish Civil War
This woman is hugely engaging, really smart and has a direct family history related with passion, along with proper memorabilia and artifacts of the fight against Franco's fascists. Enjoyed discussing the war with her family and connections with the International Brigades.
If you are in Madrid it would be a folly not seeing Almudena....a top, top tour.
