Hello travelers! Welcome to wonderful Barcelona! I have lived in Barcelona for years and I have made this city my home. I like history, traveling as much as I can and meeting people from all over the world and their respective cultures. Join me on this guided tour, we will explore the corners of Barcelona where there are a lot of stories to know. "Barcelona is a city of stagehands, of people who live behind the scenes, but that, believe me, friend Daniel, is not a demerit, because that means that Barcelona is a city of secrets. A place where each street hides a story, where each corner holds a mystery, where each person has a secret to hide or reveal". Carlos Ruiz Zafón in ¨The Shadow of the Wind¨.
