We will meet in the Customs Square. Are you ready to travel to the seventeenth century? Do not think that we will move to one of the moments of maximum splendor of Malaga, quite the opposite. We will see how the plague struck its population! At that time, anyone, of the social class that was, could be a victim of diseases such as smallpox, tuberculosis or leprosy. However, the black plague was one of the worst nightmares for the Andalusian population, an epidemic that left no one indifferent.

Meanwhile, we will know what the methods they used to cure the sick of this divine punishment. You will put your hair to tip when discovering who were in charge of burials!
