Hello! I'm Rachel. I have been a Tourist Guide in Jaén for 3 years. I consider myself a great enthusiast of my profession, a passion that I have carried with me for many years and that I have finally fulfilled like a dream. I love dealing with the public because they are my way of sharing the history of a place, why it is there. I hope I can pass on the story to you as much as I do the passion for it :)
