Born in a small city really close to Barcelona, she moved to the capital ten years ago and now cannot leave this city which has given her more than she could ever have imagined; she discovered her true vocation here. When she was a child she read a book about a minstrel who was travelling during the Middle Ages, from one village to the next, explaining his histories. She always thought it must be a nice job, but maybe it wouldn't be a job you could do nowadays. After finishing her degree in Architecture, she started to do something she's always wanted to try: the construction of histories. She opened a blog, but just some of her friends were reading the stories. Till someone proposed her to memorise one of the histories and tell it in a bar. Since that moment, she never stopped doing that. And after a while, she thought she could mix her double vocation, the architecture and the storytelling. And now you can join her as she travels through the city explaining the stories its buildings, history, heritage & culture, just like a real minstrel.
