About us: the project.
Cooltourspain is a social, cultural and educational project. It all started with the high interest that people from all over the world had about getting to know Madrid with a different point of view, through the eyes of street art and graffiti. These visitors were interested about us, our graffiti culture and the opportunity to visit the off the beaten tracks of the city. It’s a social project because all activities are leaded by local specialists from Spain; cultural due to the fact that all services are related to art and the educational part of the project comes from the stencil seminars and graffiti workshops we curate for middle and high school students.

About us: the beginnings.
Javier Garcia created Cooltourspain back in 2015. He participated in the visiting teacher program in the US, where teacher from all over Spain spend 3 years in an American school. Odessa, TX and Denver, CO were the two cities who showed him the path to follow as there were many people interested about us and visiting our country taking part at any of the road trips in Spain we organized. Javier first launched a website aimed towards the Spanish culture and we changed the idea of the project focusing in street art services in Madrid.
