Secrets of Barcelona
I was engaged in tourism for more than 10 years. For me, it is also the way to know people and make my knowledge wider. I am interested in history, architecture, art and cuisine. I like to share my beloved places with people, to show them another point of view. It will be my pleasure to meet you, be my guest!
I will tell you the legends of Barcelona, show highlights of the old city, introduce you to the most important figures of Catalonia, draw your attention to gastronomic places.
We will go by La Rambla - the main street of Barcelona.
