Aprendí de forma muy amena detalles del casco antiguo que desconocía (vivo en Barcelona hace mucho tiempo). Creo que es una excelente manera de aprender mucho sobre el sitio que han elegido visitar. Nuestro guía era muy claro en sus descripciones, lo hizo muy bien. No me puedo acordar si se llama Facundo o Fernando (disculpas!). Mi hermano, que está de visita, quedó muy feliz con el recorrido. Muchísimas gracias!
