One of the most beautiful urban gardes in Madrid city is located in Calle Doctor Fourquet. It’s probably one of our guests’ favourite locations. Its’ walls were decorated by Zeta 1970: full of life, ideas and color.

Reviews of our graffiti tour in Lavapiés

A fascinating and insightful couple of hours with Javier in a group of four. Much more than a recitation of facts and an exhibition of images. Javier is the best sort of guide - a deeply informed enthusiast with a passion for his subject and a mission to pass on his knowledge. We very much enjoyed our tour and appreciated Javier’s good company. Lots of welcome recommendations too for local places to eat and drink. Special thanks for introducing us to the wonderful La Malanga, in Mercado Cebada where Antonio and his fellow chefs served us a stunningly good lunch after the tour.

We took the two-hour street art tour of downtown Madrid and we really enjoyed it. The guide was very well informed and he took us to see a lot of interesting and beautiful street art creations in the areas of La Latina, Malasana and Embajadores, including the walls of the tobacco factory. We highly recommend this tour.

Planning the afternoon with Javier was a breeze and he very kindly made us flexible proposals to fit the schedule of the bachelor weekend we were planning. We met on Saturday afternoon for an hour-long walk around Lavapies where we got to not only see incredible graffitis and street art but also got from him the history and meaning behind each of them. It's a very mind opening tour that I would highly recommend to see something different and more contemporary than the more traditional (and vanilla) things to do in Madrid! We ended the tour at a local artist workshop where Javier had set up and planned everything for us to do our own graffiti for the Groom on tote bags. It was great fun and relaxed atmosphere with Javier guiding us through the process and arranging drinks and delicious food to be delivered!
