You will learn all about the city’s particular Muslim foundations, exploring it’s whole history and Madrid’s role as the capital of Spain. Madrid was founded approximately at the end of 9th century (around year 870) by the emir of Cordoba Muhammad I, who constructed a fortress where the Royal Palace now stands. This will be our starting point. From there we will walk along the bustling streets that witnessed all these events, strolling and chilling in the elegant squares, and uncovering the most popular spots of Madrid’s past and present times. We will visit Plaza Mayor, Madrid’s largest square which hosts the world’s oldest working restaurant; Puerta del Sol, Spain’s centrical kilometre 0, Royal Palace , the Market of San Miguel, the Almudena Cathedral with their sumptuous surroundings, the founding Muslim Walls, the Royal Gardens of Sabattini
