Guided tour - Barcelona - Mari Carmen Granados

One of the most visited cities in the world, cosmopolitan, hospitable, modern and fascinating. It currently has about 1.5 million inhabitants. Barcelona stands out for its heritage and its history. Its most glorious past was between the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, when Barcelona stood out for its commercial maritime activity. The popular Gothic Quarter still shows its splendour: the Gothic cathedral, the Royal Palace, the Barri de la Ribera and the Church of Santa María del Mar, the palaces in Montcada street…

Moving towards modernity, Barcelona experienced its great growth with the Industrial Revolution and Universal and International Exhibitions: the medieval walls were demolished to let the city grow towards the Eixample and the Paseo de Gracia, spaces that were embellished with modernist bourgeois houses built by important architects such as Gaudí, Domènech i Montaner and Puig i Cadafalch.

In Barcelona’s recent history, there is also room for modernity: the Olympic Games marked a turning point in the city’s urban development: areas such as Montjuïc, the sea promenade, the Port Vell and the Olympic Port, were developed to give rise to what are now some of the most interesting tourist spots.

Discover the city of Barcelona with a complete visit to its main places of interest:

Panoramic tour of the city: bus tour (for groups) through the main points of the city: Plaza de España, Montjuïc mountain, Paseo Marítimo, La Barceloneta, Paseo de Gracia, etc.

El meu nom és M. Carme Granados i sóc de Reus. La meva passió per les humanitats em va portar a cursar la llicenciatura d’Història de l’Art a la Universitat Rovira i Virgili. Més tard vaig tenir ocasió d’especialitzar-me cursant el Màster Oficial en Gestió del Patrimoni Cultural de la Universitat de Barcelona. La importància del turisme per a la valoració i la conservació de la nostra cultura i per a la dinamització econòmica i social que desenvolupa, em va dur a orientar la meva carrera professional cap aquest camp. Així doncs, què millor que ser guia turística per viure de prop l’art, la cultura i la història i, poder així, transmetre-les als visitants. He treballat com a monitora de tallers infantils i sènior, com guia i informadora de museus i altres centres culturals, també he tingut ocasió de treballar en la gestió d’alguns museus i evidentment, com a guia turística especialitzada en la província de Tarragona.
