About

As I already say I am a History and Arts professor, and occasionally work as freelance tourist guide in Madrid and the surrounding historical cities (Toledo, Segovia, Cuenca, Avila, Alcalá de Henares, Sigüenza, Aranjuez, Escorial...). I enjoy my job so I can consider myself lucky. I am fan of travelling and as a good madridian, I am friendly and open-minded. I am used to work and spend time with foreign people.


Hobbies

Being an arts lover, I enjoy walking around having a look on history and architecture. I love to map for narrow quite streets searching where small antiquities and design shops are hidden. I spend my free time visiting art exhibitions and the great and wide range of Museums in Madrid, going out and spending time with friends, among them, It is usual to find some foreigners. Moreover, I enjoy driving to the outskirts of Madrid, visiting small ancient villages and the closer mountains of Guadarrama.


Occupation

I work as a History and History of Arts Professor and Culture Manager. I am teaching History and History of Arts as my main occupation. I also work as freelance guide in Madrid and surrounding cities Segovia, Toledo, Ávila, Alcalá de Henares, Sigüenza
