What is it / What we do

What is CAMINAMADRID?

CAMINAMADRID aims to bring closer and to spread the knowledge on architecture, urban planning, landscape and art. To achieve those goals CAMINAMADRID offers tours, visits, walks and travels guided by architects, engineers, urban planners and historians in both urban and rural areas with an outstanding cultural heritage.
These proposals cover different historical times and any kind of cultural interest assets (from buildings to paintings) to allow to show a wide range of tendencies, the keys of the artistic styles represented on each place and the urban transformations happened through the years up to the actual cities.
It goes into details about the visited cultural items, their origins, their own characteristics, historical facts, old owners, and how deep have they contributed to the city we can see today.
