Enrique has lived in Madrid since he was three and at an early age he had already discovered his love for art when he went to visit "the most viewed painting of all times" Guernica, by Pablo Picasso. This led him into study art history, where he specialized in Nineteenth Century Spanish painting, and began a doctorate in History focusing on the Death penalty in Spain from 1800 until1975. Well travelled, art and history lover and true "local" passionate about the history of his beloved city, he will be a great match for anyone looking for authentic in-depth history or art tour.
