Here’s a preview of the first-ever Jose Rizal virtual walking tour of Madrid guided by a Filipina historian.

The walking tour will follow the national hero’s footsteps through the streets of the capital city of Spain and visit the 15 principal locations that made an impact in the Filipino’s life during the Spanish colonial period.

The first-ever virtual walking tour of Jose Rizal’s journey in Madrid is produced by the Philippine Embassy in Spain under the leadership of Amb. Philippe Jones Lhuillier and the Philippines’ National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA).

The virtual walking tour will premiere live on the embassy’s Facebook page on March 6, 2021, at 12 NN in Madrid / 7 PM Philippine Standard Time.

In 2018, Spain renamed a street in Madrid Street the Calle de Jose Rizal to honor the Filipino’s legacy in the city.

University of the Philippines historian Dr. Ros Costelo recently received the highest academic honors at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid where Jose Rizal is an alumnus.

Jose Rizal’s martyrdom was recently commemorated with the world’s largest Jose Rizal solar portrait built by the Liter of Light at the Rizal Park/Luneta in Manila.
