Stirling: Historical Walking Tour in Spanish

Experience Stirling's medieval wall on this day tour. Scotland has had 11 fortified cities in its history, one of which was Stirling. You’ll walk along majestic streets, such as King Street, where you’ll talk about famous poets as well as the city's most relevant buildings. You'll also go up to the highest part of the city, where the old medieval market was located as well as the place where public executions were held. In the 19th century, Stirling owned the worst jail in all of Great Britain. It was a wet and nasty place that was crammed with prisoners consisting of men, women, and children. They ranged in age from minor offenders to adults, and included murderers as well as people awaiting their trial and debtors. On the other hand, the church of Holy Rude in Stirling hosted King James VI's coronation, who was the son of Mary Stuart. This church alongside Westminster Abbey is the only church still in use to have seen such events in Great Britain. Your local guide will take you through the streets of this wonderful town, where you will encounter King Street, the medieval wall, Mercat Cross, the Old Jail, the Tollbooth, the John Cowane Hospital, the Old Cemetery, Pyramid Star, and the Holy Rude Church, among others.
