Learn and Enjoy Art and History in Madrid

Learn, taste experience enjoy our Madrid art seminars. Our tailor-made seminars and talks cover the fascinating episodes, the strong-willed women in power, the artists, and personalities that stand out from the rich and sometimes weird history of Spain, its people and territories.

These are unique Madrid art seminars personalised and private: our experts will take you on a journey into history, showing you the background to the famous pantings , the people and the events. You’ll get a real taste for the real Spain, as you’ll be walking the same streets where it all took place ! You’ll also enjoy wines and food and other flavours of Spain.

Madrid Art Seminars prepare you for a visit to the Prado, Segovia and other historic site

Can we think of a better way to enjoy what a picture by Goya has to offer than to arrive at the Museo del Prado having previously become acquainted with the stories that lie behind it?  How can we get to know the streets and corners of Madrid and Segovia without becoming familiar with the main protagonists of their history?

Four Top Experiences:

Here are four Madrid Art Seminars combining art, history, and the most traditional Spanish gastronomical delicacies.

  • Joanna “the Mad” – the rebellious Infanta  (Segovia)
  • Elephant & Castle  – two sisters and their upbringing  (Segovia)
  • Madrid Art and Tapas –  4 great works of art
  • A Poker of Princesses – The Queens of Austrias.

It is not the same to think about an Infanta of Castile as hieratic and distant as she is seen in a picture and to imagine her as a child blushing when a manservant rescues her when she  falls from her mule while trying to cross the river. Nor is it the same to tell this story from the distance of the cloister or during a chat about history while sharing a glass of wine.

Our Madrid art seminars give a different and organic approach to history and art, offering various points of view from which to contemplate their stories, considering them as part of a cultural whole that includes a musical piece as well as a meeting with friends.

Just as we do not cross the same river twice we do not tell the same story twice. The meeting between the narrator and the listener is unique and unrepeatable. There are so many ways to tell a story, this is our proposal.

Prepare for The Prado!

Planning a trip to the Prado Museum, Segovia or other museums or historical destinations near Madrid ? Our Madrid art seminars are the perfect preparation. After experiencing one of our seminars, you’ll walk into the Prado with the upper hand: knowing the background and able to appreciate the art to the full.

For sightseeing we also recommend Madrid by Segway or a bike tour of Madrid!
