Description of Guided tour of Madrid by Benito Pérez Galdós

We suggest taking a guided tour through Galdosian Madrid, the same one that appears in Don Benito Pérez Galdós' novels and its Madrid. 

We will talk about the great Canarian writer and we will learn that the streets on which his characters stepped still exist today, even though they are slowly disappearing and the specific originality of Old Madrid is fading away.

We will see how his works masterfully blend together fiction and reality, which gave life to a literary universe in which the protagonists lived, walked, loved and crisscrossed thus converting Don Benito's works in a faithful depiction of 19th century Madrid.

We will relate the stories of Fortunata, Jacinta, Benigna, Almudena the Moor, the usurer Torquemada, Rosalía Pipaón, Gabriel Araceli, Salvador Monsalud and many others. We will also talk about the National Episodes, Fortunata, and Jacinta, Misericordia, Fontana de Oro, Las de Bringas, Miau and more.

*If you are a group with 4 people or more, can ask for a private tour. You just need to ask about it and we will give you the best option that adapts to you. 

**Discounts exists for big groups.

    The guided tour to, Benito Perez Galdos's Madrid was very interesting and enjoyable. Almudena took us through a lot of sites related to the work of Perez Galdos and told us a lot of anecdotes about the characters and how they relate to each other. I think a highly recommended guided tour.

    We seemed too focused on Fortunata and Jacinta, we miss more of the Madrid that appears in the rest of the work of Galdós.

    Company's response:
    Good morning Cristina, first of all thank you for your opinion, however, this time, I do not agree. As you know the Galdosiano Madrid is very wide, encompassing, in addition to the Sun and surroundings other neighborhoods, such as those on the other side of the Manzanares, the Latina, Lavapies, Retiro, Cuatro Caminos, Malasaà ± a and even el Pardo, so in a two-hour route, we can not go through all the scenarios of all Galdós novels. As you will suppose, to make a coherent route on foot, of about two hours, you have to make a selection. I think part of Fortunata and Jacinta, we talk about Rosalia Pipaón, Gabriel Araceli, Salvador Monsalud, Benigno Cordero, the one of the Sad Design, Doña Benigna, Doña Paca, the Moor Almudena, the Cesante, Luisito, Las Miau, Torquemada, La Desheredada, Doctor Centeno, Lazaro and Clara, among many other Galdosian characters, and as you know, not all of Fortunta and Jacinta ... Still, we will take your opinion into account and incorporate new comics. Thanks again for your opinion a greeting Almudena

    I have really enjoyed the galdosiana route but it is that Almudena is ' all terrain ' And it explains to you adapting to your interests and curiosities.

    I recommend a guided tour with her without a doubt.

    We are delighted every time we make a guided tour with Algaraba (Almudena is charming and really knows a lot).

    We have made several visits and will repeat. It is also a gift that you always enjoy.
