Spanish Inquisition Walking Tour

  • English
  • 2 hours

The public condemnations of the Tribunal of the Holy Office terrorized Spain for centuries. Discover the spine-chilling secrets of the Spanish Inquisition on this fascinating walking tour of Madrid.


You'll begin your Spanish Inquisition walking tour of Madrid at dusk in Plaza de la Provincia. Here, you'll meet your storyteller, who will guide you through the darkening cobbled alleyways and squares of the Spanish capital by the light of a lantern. Learn all about the former jail located in this square, and discover the main heresy committed by those who were locked up here.

While you learn all about the historical background of the Tribunal of the Holy Office, you'll wander past ancient churches and monasteries, as well as visiting the sites where dungeons, prisons and gallows were located. Hear the gruesome details of the auto-da-fé, the torturing and executions of heretics that became popular public spectacles.

After journeying deep into the past and discovering the chilling ghost stories and tales of atrocities committed in the darkest days of the Spanish empire, you'll finish your tour - you'll never look at Madrid the same way again!
