Madrid Museum Tours proposes you an unsurpassed artistic, historical, and cultural experience touring the Monasterio Descalzas Reales.  

  • Combined with private Walks in charming Madrid Downtown.

Explore with a licensed guide and major in art history, one of the most unknown chapters of Spain History. For the first time ever, the mysteries of royal convent life, its strong Counter Reformation atmosphere and the symbols and social actions of the royal nuns, are unveiled. Amazing facts that surprise, without exception, all our clients.

The private Visit begins at the Monasterio Descalzas Reales, in English, Royal Convent of the Barefoot Nuns Madrid.

Its Founder was Juana de Austria, daughter of emperor Charles 5th. She almost became the first and only Jesuit nun of her time.

Dona Juana de Austria donated this imposing Renaissance Palace to the Poor Clare Franciscans Cloistered Nuns. This order, for over almost 500 years, continue to live in this Convent and is in charge of  its maintenance . The Convent of the Barefoot Nuns Madrid was awarded in 1987 as the Best European Community Museum. Its main attraction is the ten 17th century Flemish tapestries based on the Sacrament of the Eucharist. Great painter Peter Paul Rubens painted the cartoons. However, our private tour goes beyond descriptions. Discover with us the astounding secrets hidden behind the real, imaginary, and fake doors of the Convent.

TO BE NOTED : As a client of Madrid Museum Tours, enjoy an UNIQUE ADVANTAGE: To have an individual private tour in English.  A norm of the Royal Convent of Barefoot Nuns dictates that only group tours in Spanish, up to 20 participants, are allowed.
