There are many more places to explore, but the above are suggestions for first-time visitors. And of course, with all the tours, we can suggest lunch spots for a “tapas tour”, featuring the gastronomy cultural heritage of Madrid.

Additionally, we can also customize tours in locations outside, but near, Madrid:
The Escorial Monastery
La granja de San Ildenfonso
And by speed train, Toledo Imperial city in the XVc, the perfect mix between three cultures (Catholic, Jewish and Muslim) and the Greco city.
