Ana C.

Granada, Spain

Hola! Hi! Ciao! Marhaba! My name is Ana, and I welcome you to my beautiful city!

I'm an official tour guide from Granada, born and raised, and would like to tell you a little more about me, so you could choose me as your next local guide.

I have studied Art History at the University of Granada, and then I took a Master about Production and Researching in History and Fine Arts, so I have all the knowledge to show you this astonishing place.

During my last degree year, 2014, I earned a scholarship and I started working as a guide in a museum in the city centre, there is where I learnt most of my skills as a guide. Is also the time when I realized I would like to work as a tour guide, so I took up languages lessons to apply for the official accreditation.

When I finished my Master, I took a gap year, so I could travel a little around before starting in a full-time job.
I lived in Liguria, northern Italy, for a while, and also in Edinburgh, Scotland. It was a great experience, I learnt a lot about other cultures and made me improve my Italian and English. Then, I knew I was ready for the hard work.

Meanwhile, I started my PhD, sometimes is tough working and studying at the same time, but I think of my thesis as my hobby, and is easier that way. My researching concerning the PhD is about Tattoo's History, I know is a little bit rare, but I am very proud of it because mine is the first one! Hopefully, in a couple of years, I will become Dr Ana C.
I have also several researchings and articles about Granada, the Alhambra and the Christian period right after 1492, published in very important magazines.

When I have some free time I like to read, a lot. I am also a collector of rare and old books, is one of my great passions. I do like travelling, and I have been to many places. One of the greatest things of being a guide in monuments like the Alhambra, for example, is that you have the opportunity to talk and share experiences with people from all over the world, and for me is a great enrichment.

My personality is calm, and patience. I know how to manage difficult situations, and politeness is my main rule. But don't worry! I am not serious at all, you will see me always smiling.

Do not hesitate in asking me any question you have, will be a pleasure to help and provide you with all the information you need. I am very flexible and we can create the perfect tour that suits you.

I love what I do, that's the reason for my success.

Hope to see you very soon in Granada!
