Hello! My name is Pablo, I am a historian and professor. I am in love with Valencia, its culture, traditions and history. Therefore, I love sharing my knowledge and my passion with other people. And, by the way, I never stop visiting new places or studying new topics. I take advantage of my free time to dance, sing in the choir, watch football or simply walk around my beloved city, Valencia.

Good alternative to the usual whistle stop tour of a city. Pablo was really nice and interactive but sometimes we felt we couldn’t understand what he was saying.
