VIDEO CALL Carmencita

Hola! I'm Carmen, your friendly host to the heart and soul of Barcelona. What I cherish most about this city isn't just its world-famous attractions but those hidden gems tucked away from the regular tourist trails. I'm your key to "secret-ish" restaurants and bars where you'll be treated like family and quaint streets that deserve to be explored and adored. Barcelona's neighborhoods, from the historic Gothic to the vibrant Poble Nou, have stories whispered in every corner, and I'm thrilled to be the one sharing them with you. Ever sipped wine in a quiet plaza, watching the world drift by, or meandered through rose-filled Parque de Cervantes? With me, you'll experience the real Barcelona, one charming square and laughter-filled moment at a time. Safety is paramount, and while our city is a beauty, it has its quirks. But fret not, with me by your side, you'll not only explore with wonder but with peace of mind. Ready to uncover Barcelona's best-kept secrets?
