Tormented, ghosts float through Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol, and San Gines. Ghosts from ages past pass through the capital when night falls: get to know their legends with this nighttime ghost tour of Madrid.
Leaving from Plaza Cibeles (Madrid City Hall), the first stop will be Plaza Mayor. Don't let the tourists and cheerful atmosphere fool you - the cobbled square is soaked in blood, as this was the place where heretics would be executed during the Spanish Inquisition, the ghosts of whom are still said to wail come nightfall.
And that is just one of the grisly stories the tour will take in. In Puerta del Sol the Devil himself is said to have helped a French captain escape from the old Casa de Correos when surrounded by Spanish soldiers. In the Church of San Ginés, it is said a headless ghost appears in the doorway under the cover of darkness, and even the Royal Palace itself has been subject to exorcisms.
By the end of the tour you will know all about the macabre happenings in this oldest of cities; but perhaps might think twice when venturing out after dark next time...
