Being a guide is like opening my heart to people, for I love my homeland and I wish to share this feeling with the visitors, and introduce them to its history, its art, its culture, its wines, its renowned cuisine, its everyday-life…
My first experience as interpreter and public relations often included showing my homeland, and most specially, Barcelona, to the people I was working for. Little by little, this activity, as well as further studies and exams, has allowed me to become an Official Guide of Catalonia (officially certified by the Catalan Autonomous Government).
Here are some of the places I would love to show you:
- Sagrada Famïlia (most impressive Gaudí’s building)
- All-Barcelona Tour
- Art Nouveau (Modernisme): La Pedrera, Casa Batlló...
- Park Güell,
- Palau de la Música Catalana (UNESCO World Heritage Site)
- Picasso Museum
- Barri Gòtic (medieval quarter)
- Barcelona Football Club (Barça Museum),
- Miró Foundation,
- MNAC (Romanesque Art, Gothic Art, Modernisme -Art Nouveau-...)
and many other less-known but equally interesting places.
- Montserrat (mountain and sanctuary, including its very important Art Museum)
- Girona (medieval city with its Jewish Quarter and Museum)
- Dalí Museum (Figueres)
- Gala-Dalí Castle in Púbol

as well as any other sites in Catalonia that you would like to visit.
