Being ambitious, I have always set myself goals and it motivates me to work hard. I have achieved my goals so far with my training, education and work experience, so I'm more than prepared to keep sharing all my knowledge with everyone who decides to come and visit this lovely city.
Seville is one of the most interesting cities in Spain. It has a rich History and one of the biggest old towns, full of World Heritage sites declared by UNESCO; such as the Cathedral, the Royal Alcazar, the Archive of Indies. Places we can visit together since as a professionally qualified Tour Guide I'm allowed to guide everywhere that guiding is permitted.
So you cannot miss it!
Although Seville not only is History, but also has the legacy of the three great religions since in this city were living together Christians, Muslims and the Jewish Community. So still today, walking through the narrow alleys we can appreciate different remains that transport us to that century, to that way of life.
15th and 16th centuries gave to this city even more importance due to the Port of the Indies situated next to the Gold Tower at the Guadalquivir River. After Christopher Columbus arrived to American soil, most of the gold, silver and precious stones that later on arrived to Spain, would come first to this city, to this port; since the "House of Trade" founded in 1503 by the Catholic Monarchs had its seat in Seville. So this centuries were very important in order to give wealth to the city. 17th century was also important to Seville, but in this case, not owing to economical richness but because of the most influencial artists as painters and sculptors belongs to this century.
In this city you can find everything you're looking for! And I haven't even mentioned the food! Simply fantastic! Antique Markets, pubs, bars, parks, magnificent hotels where having a lovely tea. . .
Do not hesitate! Come and let's explore!
A Recent Review of this guide
This was my first experience using Tours by Locals and it was great! Our family of 4, with two teenagers, traveled to Seville late December 2018. Ariadna gave our walking city tour. She was amazing! What a wonderful combination to be a local from Seville AND a history professor -- perfect person to tell us all about Seville. Ariadna is warm, friendly, energetic, professional, and intelligent. She was an excellent guide for our family and any tourist would be grateful to have her.
