In historic Madrid there are fascinating places to visit on a sightseeing tour using the app of www.spain-walkingtours.com


Plaza De la Villa Madrid

Starting at Puerta del Sol: known as kilometer zero of the roads of Spain. Here is the famous statue of the Bear and the Strawberry Tree, symbol of Madrid, and the clock that marks the chimes on New Year's Eve.


Then we can go to the 17th century Plaza Mayor, with its architecture and lively atmosphere, go through Mercado de San Miguel and get to know the culinary culture of Madrid in this historic market, where you can try a wide variety of tapas, wines and local products.


From there we can go to the Royal Palace and the Almudena Cathedral, passing through the famous Plaza de la Villa, where Emperor Carlos kept the King of France locked up in the 16th century.


If we dare we can continue to the Egyptian temple of Debod, it is more than 2,200 years old and was transferred to Madrid in the 20th century.


These are just some of the places you can visit in Madrid. The city is full of history and charm, and each corner has something special to discover, but much better if you do it on your own using an app from www.spain-walkingtours.com, specifically for this tour, the Historical Madrid one.
