What you can expect

Barcelona's true colors come to life in the evening, once the locals have time to unwind after a hard day of work. The locals get out on the streets and terraces, the air gets fresher and the architecture is highlighted in the evening light, it is a sight to behold!

Let me show you the best sights under the orange hue of the last rays of the sun. I'll share with you my favorite stories about my beloved city, and the best spots to enjoy a beautiful sunset.

Meet me at the Arc de Triomf where you can admire the Moorish-inspired red-bricked structure, with numerous details in the sculptures and motifs that I'll help you discover.
Walk down the Passeig Lluis Companys, named after the former Catalan president killed during the Franco dictatorship, to the Born Cultural Centre. This center is situated in the old Ribera neighborhood destroyed by the Spanish government as revenge for losing the war. See & learn how this neighborhood has transformed itself over time.

Cross the Passeig del Born for a visit to the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar, built by merchants and seaman. This basilica is dedicated to the Holy Virgin from the Sea. As a cool backdrop, you can spot the old Roman circus (horse racetrack) on the horizon.

One thing Barcelona is famous for is its many beautiful squares. The local squares are the favorite spot for the locals to chill and hang out. They are the epitome of culture and nightlife of the city! Visit Plaça de Ramon Berenguer el Gran, Plaça del Rei, Plaça Sant Jaume and Sant Felip Neri. While I share with you the stories of the squares, dating back to Roman times, you can enjoy the magic evening atmosphere. Maybe you'll even catch local musicians playing in the street!

Say goodbye at Plaça de la Catedral, where the Cathedral and the bishop palace are settled, also the roman and medieval town and a reconstruction of the two aqueducts that were serving water to Barcino. From beginning to end, you will be surrounded by beautiful sights!

Contact me for a personalized night tour. I can create a whole experience based on what you want to do & see! See you soon!

After spending some time living abroad, meeting a lot of people from all around the world and sharing cultural experiences with them I just came back to my hometown.

Showing my city to the people I've met during my time abroad is what I love , important places were historical things happened in the past, masterpieces of the culture but also hidden places only locals know or stories that belong to the oral tradition of the country.

I have studied marketing and recently I have been focused on international relations as I realized I love cultural differences and to get to know and treasure them."
