Who is one of our longest standing Madrid private tour guides?
That’s Santi! A 43 years old teacher from Castellón, who loves riding his mountain bike in the countryside while listening to electronic music on his ipod. He joined our group of Madrid private tour guides back in 2017. Since then, he has leaded dozens of street art tours in Lavapiés and a couple more graffiti workshops at La Tabacalera. He collaborates with one of the most active places for street art in town. Have you seen any of his photos in our instagram account? Santi’s favourite street art is the one which includes a message and makes him think about the story that lies behind the artwork. What’s yours?
