The tourism industry is full of attractive activities to all kind of travellers. People find that Spain is a country that offers plans for mountain & beach enthusiasts but being the big capital cities the ones that receive the highest number of guests. Today we will talk to you about incredible experiences in Madrid that are found in the city center, specially designed for street art and graffiti lovers who like exploring the alternative districts where the classic tours don’t enter.
A group of local guides run these daily opportunities to explore Madrid’s off the beaten culture from a point of view where you won’t feel as a foreigner, but as a madrileño (the name given to the local people who were born and raised in the Spanish capital city). Professional tour leaders will guide unique street art tours where you will learn about history, techniques and the hidden details of an underground cultural movement that expands all around the Autonomous Community.
Please receive a warm welcome from our urban art’s team. We are ready to show you our city as you have never explored it before.
Which of the following incredible experiences in Madrid should I choose?
There is one outstanding experience among them all! The street art tour in Lavapies is our guests’ favourite. Travellers who read the award-winning reviews that other visitors leave about Javier’s guided visit are attracted by his artistic skills, highly communicative aptitudes, but most importantly because of the passion on what he makes.
This approximately two hours visit has been rated as one of the most incredible experiences in Madrid by over 3,000 customers. He will show you the most colorful murals around Embajadores district, hidden street art in Calle Argumosa and the history that lies behind the artworks observed during the activity. Did you know that you could have the opportunity (based upon availability) to create your own stencil graffiti after the tour?
The visit also features the explanation of three different contemporary art festivals: CALLE, Muros Tabacalera and Urvanity. Local, national and international artists have participated in the last editions. Have you ever heard of Ben Eine, Okudart or El Rey de la Ruina? Amazing professionals who have painted in Madrid’s streets.

What are the reasons to participate in our incredible experiences in Madrid?
It won’t be us telling you that information, but the guests who shared their reviews on platforms such as Tripadvisor. People who participated in the past on our guided visits think that we are not only street art guides, but also artists with passion for graffiti. You may also check the opinion of our guests in Lametayel, Israel’s biggest travellers forum.
Another reason that you should take into account during the purchasing process of our incredible experiences in Madrid is that the revenue obtained from your money will go to our street art foundation in Madrid. Every 2 months we organize free guided visits for Down Madrid, a local association that collaborates with us in the art’s inclusion.
Visitors from all over the world also thanked us on Facebook for the tips we suggested them in order to continue exploring the Spanish capital in a different and alternative way. Have you ever heard of Matadero Madrid or an avant garde center called La Neomudejar? This last spot features brut art, visual arts and graffiti in a unique setting, a former railway warehouse from the XIX century. Such an incredible quirky building!
Where is located the meeting point for these incredible experiences in Madrid?
We started meeting by the two baby head statues located across Hotel Only You Atocha. The nearest metro station is Atocha RENFE, but as the project grew the requirements and necessities changed.
By the beginning of 2019 our guests will find us by the entrance of Teatro Valle Inclan (Calle de Valencia, 1). Its nearest metro stop is Lavapiés. CDN’s building is just by the exit.
Why did we change the meeting point for these incredible experiences in Madrid? We wanted to kick off from a breath-taking graffiti artwork. You will see! Please take into account that all our guides carry a Cooltourspain badge that will make identifying us easier. We arrive 10 minutes earlier to the meeting point for a better UX (user experience).
