Dive into Madrid's darker history with an in-app audio tour focusing on the city's ties to the Spanish Inquisition. This narrative is designed for inquisitive adult travelers interested in the cultural and historical intricacies of Spain's capital through the lens of its bygone era of religious trials and tribulations. Beginning at Plaza de Isabel II and concluding at the secret Inquisition Jail, the tour follows the shadows of the city's past, winding through six historically significant sites. The starting point sets the stage with an introduction to the founders of the Spanish Inquisition. The journey then takes a sobering twist in Plaza Mayor, where once severe judgments were witnessed. The tour glides through Plaza de la Provincia, touching upon the Black Legend, before reaching Palace of the Holy Cross, a former seat of grim control. Concluding at the Inquisition Jail marks a chilling remembrance of persecution. Along the way, immerse in vivid reconstructions of the past and sense the weight of history that shaped the city.
