The Black Legend of the Spanish Inquisition - Walking Tour



  • A journey into the dark days of the Spanish empire
  • The mysteries and ghost stories of the Madrid de los Austrias
  • The Royal Palace and the Almudena Cathedral
  • One of the most interesting evening walk you might experience


At dusk, when the sun sets over Madrid, spectres from the past stretch like long shadows to veil the city in the black of night when the lantern leads our way. During this walk through alleys and squares, you will also explore hidden corners where you will hear gruesome facts, ghost stories, superstitions and old beliefs, as well as stories of hatred and persecution.

Mysterium Tours in Madrid presents the dark side and the folklore of the Los Madriles, told by the voice of an elegant narrator who will share with you the most intimate and atrocious aspects of the Spanish Inquisition, that lead to a knock on the door under the cover of darkness.

This tour does not include access to interiors of sites visited and no “jump scare” actors.
We rely on the professional story telling skills of our guides.

Put aside your phone and the modern way of seeing things; let yourself be carried away by the stories and facts that will be drammatically told and follow each step carefully. Open your mind and play with your imagination; this will provide you with a glimpse of the past, a glance into the darkest aspects, born from the superstition of the old times gone by.
