Cristina is a person who considers herself above all enthusiastic, vital, empathic and lover of her work. I have a lot of experience working with tourism from all over Europe, especially from the United Kingdom, a country that I know quite well, since I have lived, studied and worked in it. I have also lived in Paris for work as a mail guide and in Brussels. I have a lot of sense of humor and the smile is a must in my personality a little bit crazy you know. Since the guides are made of a special pasta hehehe. As an authentic Valencian, I am a fan of Fallas, as well as my family. I know every corner of my city, and accustomed to walking, I would love to involve the group, from a somewhat less visited area: THE BIOPARK I have studied tourism and translation and have worked in the tourism sector for a long time leading groups of British, French and Germans. I love the interaction with other cultures and above all, to be a mediator among the people who come to know our country, culture, traditions and landscapes. It is wonderful to get that after the tour, the group returns happily to their place of origin, with a positive conception about the place they have visited. And there it is we, the guides, who have that great responsibility and duty to transmit all the best.

About the Tour

Welcome to Valencia! I invite you to travel to the most fascinating past of my city.

Together we will discover what ancient Valencia was like from its most recent past to its origins: 2,000 years ago.

We will start our tour in the beautiful Modernist-style North Station. From there we will be wandering inside the old medieval wall, where many surprises and unexpected secrets await you, such as:

  • The Silk Exchange
  • Central Market and church of Santos Juanes
  • Palace of the Marqués de Dos Aguas: a real gem.
  • Plaza Redondat
  • Valencia Cathedral
  • Remains of the Roman Valentia
  • Puerta de Serranos (the north gate of the medieval wall)


 We will go up Serranos street and we will enter fully into the medieval neighborhood par excellence of our city: El Carmen. We will get lost in this fascinating neighborhood and its narrow and labyrinthine streets.
We will contemplate hidden treasures such as:

  • Church of San Nicolás (the Valencian Sixtine Chapel)
  • Remains of the Muslim wall
  • Portal of the Valldigna.


 We will end our trip leaving the medieval world, through the west gate of the wall: the Puerta de Quart or Torres de Quart.

I will explain the history, legends and curiosities of each place.

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: We will meet at the Estación del Norte. Outside, under its clock tower. I will be wearing a green cap in my hand and I am red-haired. Please bring a mask with you. Reservations less than 4 hours in advance are not accepted.

Cristina is a wonderful guide! We spent almost 3 hours together and learned so much about Valencia. What we liked a lot is her eye for detail: Cristina notices and tells very interesting things where you probably would never pay attention otherwise. We would love to do another tour together!
