Guide profile:

I was born in Menorca and educated in Mallorca and Barcelona. After studying Tourism Management (Universitat de les Illes Balears) I moved to Barcelona, where I got my degrees in Humanities (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) and a Master in Cultural Communication (Universitat de Barcelona).

I give talks and presentations to groups of alumni of different universities, attendees of congresses and students of business schools. My major presentations and lectures are: Introduction to Barcelona, The World of Gaudí, History of Barcelona & Catalonia, and The Universe of Picasso.

I started my career as a tour guide in 1990, working since then as a travel agent and tour leader, travelling to numerous countries of Asia, Africa and North America.

I'm a licensed tour guide of Barcelona & Catalonia, where I've been working since 1997. My long experience with individuals, couples, families and small groups enables me to offer the best experience according to the interests of the visitors.

My passion for history and culture has made me into a skilled interpreter of the heritage of Catalonia. At the end of the tours I love to see how the visitors understand and appreciate better what they’ve seen and experienced.

I'm fluent in English, French and Italian, having lived in San Francisco, Paris and Florence. I'm bilingual in Catalan and Spanish.
