New guided tours of Arab Madrid
New dates for guided tours through Arab Madrid on April 23 and May 8.
March 30, 2016
Madridarabe.es is organizing these guided tours on foot to become more familiar with Madrid’s Muslim history. Madrid is the only European capital to have been founded by the Arabs in the ninth century. Its location, the city’s design, and even the origin of the Virgen de la Almudena are a part of the legacy of Arab Madrid, which was a key fortress city for the defense of Al-Andalus for 200 years.
The tour travels through the vestiges and monuments which evoke Madrid’s past as part of Al-Andalus. However, the Islamic heritage can also be felt in the Mudéjar architecture and in the borough of La Morería, final home to the Muslims in our city.
Dates: April 23 and May 8
Time and location: 11:00 a.m. at the entrance to the Museo San Isidro (address: Plaza San Andrés 2).
Duration: 2 and a half hours.
Price: 8 euros per person (payment on-site).
