What to Expect
Enjoy the Monumental Habsburgs’ Madrid, the Royal Palace, and Christmas traditions in one afternoon. 

Take a 4-hour walking tour and begin by visiting the Hapsburgs Quarter. This is the name given to Madrid when the Hapsburg dynasty reigned in Spain. This reign began with Charles I, who enriched the city with palaces and monuments. Later, Philip II made it the capital of Spain and the city grew dramatically. The journey through the Renaissance and Baroque style buildings of this era is perhaps one of the most picturesque and representative of Madrid. Reach the Plaza Mayor which hosts a local Christmas Market, where you will hear all about the Spanish Christmas traditions.

Continue to the Royal Palace which was built in the 18th century upon the ancient Baroque Italian style Alcassar of the Austrias. It is one of the most beautiful and best preserved palaces in Europe and a symbol of the permanence of Madrid as the capital of the Kingdom. The Palace was the official residence of the Spanish Monarchy from 1765 to 1931. To date, the most stunning receptions of the Spanish Crown are celebrated here, such as audiences, dinner parties, signature of agreements and the traditional ceremony of presentation of Credential Letters of foreign ambassadors to His Majesty the King.

During the tour, you will stop at one of the most emblematic and oldest Spanish Nougats shop. Taste the traditional Christmas Spanish Sweets “Turron” with a “Turron” tasting coupled with sweet liquor.
