Tate C.

Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona, Spain

Hola!! I'm Dr. Tate C. an Official Catalan Tour Guide, researcher and writer.

It's been almost one year now with ToursByLocals, since march 2018. My field is Antoni Gaudí and the Catalan Art Nouveau architecture, which is the special touch that makes Barcelona such a different city. My scholar research allows you to dig deeper and ask plenty of questions . . .

I know Gaudi's works and life, his Masterpieces and his minor projects. I was born in Reus, his hometown, across the street of Gaudi's family workshop. I was raised up surrounded by Gaudi's urban landscape, values and traditions, colours and aromas. I do connect with Gaudi's views, and I like to share that with visitors.

Being a former university professor, today I combine my tours, with my writing and with my academic life: congresses, research, and publications. Don't take me as a boring scholar guide. I will take you to try Tapas, we can explore the every-day life of the city, take amazing family pictures on the seafront. . . And as I love art, culture, travelling, and picture taking, we can share our experiences and I am sure that I will learn lots from you and your country!!

I am a holder of a PhD in Journalism and Communication, as well as a degree in Translation and Interpreting. I have written numerous books and guidebooks on Gaudí and other catalan architects. We can talk about buildings; but we can talk about food, traditions, ways of living, politics, economy. . . Life in Barcelona and in Catalunya fascinates me and I love to share my views with visitors and learn about your opinions.

Walking along with me is fun and deep. I will try my best to give you an unforgettable experience. I leave you with the description of Barcelona written by the Spanish greatest writer Miguel de Cervantes, 500 years ago!!

"Barcelona, receptacle of politeness, welcoming place for foreigners, hospital for the poor, nation of the brave, place of revenge for the offended, place where strong bonds of friendship occur, and a site where its beauty is unique. "

Let's meet in Barcelona! Fins aviat!!

A Recent Review of this guide

Had a great four hour tour peeking into hidden gems and secret spots off the beaten track. Exactly what we wanted. Ended up in a fabulous cemetery that told a tale of Barcelona in gorgeous but decaying memorials. Tate is a marvelous interpreter of what we experienced. And I don't even generally like guides. We look forward to meeting her again on our next trip to the city!
