Cosa farete

The first stop of the tour starts with Farmacia del Globo. Here, I discuss the origins of the association between pharmacies and hot air balloons, which will explore the conflict between herbalists and chemists, and the notable chemists that did much to advance the field of aviation. I also talk about how it was partially destroyed during the Civil War, and how Santiago Ramon y Cajal lived next door. My second stop is at Cine Doré, where I delve into the history of cinema in Madrid (and Spain), and I discuss several movies specifically and also how the cinema reflects the fortunes of the surrounding neighbourhood in general. The third stop is at Gran Peluqueria, where it's possible to see vintage tools and learn about the historic clients - the aforementioned Ramon y Cajal and those from the rest of Spain, who alighted off trains from Atocha and made themselves presentable before moving around the Spanish capital. The tour then stops off at La Báltica, and it will be possible to learn about the beautiful tiles on the storefront. Finally, the last stop is Taberna de Antonio Sánchez. Here, I talk about one of the oldest bars in Madrid, its links to cinema, writers & bullfighters.
Other things to note
Just bring normal clothes and shoes. It's a gentle - but interesting! - walk around the neighbourhood.

My tour focuses on the historic facades of Lavapies and Anton Martin. I am very passionate about this project because I have lived for 7 years in this historic part of Madrid. As a cultural enthusiast, I have read widely about the literary, scientific and historic aspects of these neighbourhoods, and because of my experience as a professional translator, historian and freelance writer, I can weave all these interesting stories and facts into an unforgettable, compelling narrative.
