Discover the unknown history of Madrid through the footprints and remains that gave it birth. Madrid is, in fact, the only European capital of Islamic origin, and was funded in the 9th century. Through this tour, we visit Madrid’s Andalusi and Mudejar heritage, discovering how the city’s Medieval daily life was.

Guided by two specialists that will show us, in an accurate but fun way, the remains of the Arab wall, the silos, the alleys, the Islamic doors, the Arab quarter, the Medieval urban layout, and the Mudejar churches and palaces of Islamic inspiration still present in Madrid.

We will also see the famous water travel systems that originated the motto “On water I was built, my walls are made of fire”. This will also give us the chance of learning how the water Islamic culture has been transmitted throughout Madrid’s history.

Enter in the fortress town that was Madrid for two centuries and get to know its Muslim past, welcome to Mayrit!
