A metropolis of culture, art and nightlife, Madrid has earned its place as one of Europe’s most vibrant capitals. Straying away from its main tourist draws, this short but sweet three-hour tour explores a hidden side to the city, taking in some of its more unusual neighbourhoods and landmarks

From Baroque churches to famous jamón

Your expert local guide will kick-off the tour at one of Madrid’s lesser-known religious buildings, the Iglesia San Antonio de los Alemanes (Church of St James of the Germans). This Baroque wonder is a Roman Catholic church that dates back to the 1620s and was built by King Felipe III. It’s hidden charm lies within its ellipsoidal, fresco-covered interior, which features elaborate works of art by Luca Giordano and Francisco Ricci

Now it’s time to sample one of Madrid’s top culinary delights - Jamonería López Pascual. Founded in 1919, this legendary, family-run shop offers the city’s best hams and has been handed down over three generations. The current owner, Alberto, loves to show off his 36-month, cave-­cured shoulder of black­-footed, Iberian pig from the mountains of Huelva. He may even pour you a glass of Manzanilla (sherry) while he describes the curing process to you, step by step

Romanticism and Madrid’s most bohemian neighbourhood

Walk off that ham with a stroll through the delightful Malasaña neighbourhood, which has become Madrid’s bohemian heartland. The streets have an alternative vibe, decorated with street art and lined with vintage clothing shops, trendy cafés and hipster haunts. This student mecca is loved for its weekend market stalls and traditional tapas bars

The tour finishes at the Romanticism Museum, housed in a former neo-classical palace. Here, you can explore 19th century artworks and artefacts from famous names like Goya, Federico de Madrazo, and Leonardo Alenza. This is the perfect place to learn about the Romanticism movement
