Royal Factory of Tapestry & Madrid of the Writers.


Already been to Madrid or you like "different" tours?. This is then a very good option for you: a hidden secret in the heart of Madrid (close to Atocha train station).
We will meet at the entrance of the Royal Factory of Tapestry that is operating since the XVIII century, when the King of Spain, Felipe V, decided to create it.
It supplied with luxurious tapestries and carpets for the decoration of the different Royal Recidences of the King. Quite unique in the world (Gobbelin and Aubisson in France) they go on making tapestries with the same techniques as in the XVIII century!
After this interesting and surprising visit, we will walk towards the so-called "Madrid de Las Letras" or Madrid of the Writers: a neighbourhood part of the old Madrid where in the XVII century, famous writers used to live and its comedies were performed nearby: Miguel de Cervantes is bared in a monastery here. Today a very alive quarter full of little restaurants and nice local boutiques. .
