I love showing the cities where I work and live with architecture and photography focused tours. I am passionate about Granada, the Alhambra palatine city, Seville and the whole andalusian region.
I studied my architecture degree and master in Granada, and during my degree I worked as photography teacher and editor in an arts and architecture international magazine.
When I finished I lived for half a year in Yokohama in Japan, where I could study the traditional construction techniques of the country and the culture. Lately, I worked as architect for the university of Castilla La Mancha, doing some restoration projects and new buildings in cities with a wonderful heritage, such as Toledo. During this period I did an extra master course in traditional construction techniques in the Architecture School of Madrid. In 2018 I got my official guiding license, so nowadays I work as architect for different companies and studios while I enjoy doing tours and meeting people from all around the world.
My tours, in english and spanish, mainly focus on the configuration of the cities and neighbourhoods through history. I do deep-cultural walking tours in Granada, Seville, Guadix and Málaga with visual resources, for people that wants to get deeper in knowledge with an academical basis. I also focus my tours in particular buildings or construction techniques, but if you are interested in a particular period, character, architect, feel free to ask!
I always like to enrich my tours with literature, music, and gastronomy recommendations. I also the possibility of doing photography focused tours where you can learn how to properly use a professional camera while learning about the city. With all these recommendations I want to make your tour a unique experience, for deeply enjoying the wonderful cities of Andalusia.
So if you come to the south of Spain and you want your journey to be a unique experience, contact me!
