I'm from Ireland, and spend half the year there lecturing in the National College of Art and Design and the other half here as a tour guide. I first visited Barcelona in the 90's, I was a twenty year old art student on a field trip. Coming from grey and rainy Dublin, I was blown away by the color and texture, the food and the architecture of the city. How could a place get to be so damn beautiful? My young brain asked me, and my not so young brain still asks. On my Tour we'll dive into the dramatic history, rich culture and stunning geography of the city, and I'll do my best to give a crash course in what it is that has made this city such a great place to live and to visit.
