Turismo Madrid. Monumentos visitables

The Community of Madrid together with Metro de Madrid has launched a campaign for the dissemination of the regional historical heritage accessible through this means of transport.

"Discover your monuments Metro-by-Metro" ("Descubre tus monumentos Metro a Metro") campaign, promotes 40 monuments, and reports the closest historical complexes at each underground stop. The proposals range from industrial heritage, such as the Nave de Motores, to temples such as the Parish Church Real Iglesia Parroquial de San Ginés. The tours include others like the Real Oratorio Caballero de Gracia, Fábrica de Tapices (tapestries factory), the Fábrica de El Águila or the castle Castillo de Barajas.

Through various advertising posters and a QR code, you can access the contents on the internet, providing information on the different points of recommended interest.
