Who am I?

Official tourist guide in Granada

My name is Mayte, I am an official tourist guide in Granada, accredited by the Junta de Andalucía and I am a Technician in Tourist Activities. 

I specialise in small groups and private tours for the independent traveller. 

I love travelling, getting to know other cities, different cultures and customs.

I am used  to dealing with  many people from other countries, which has been a great experience for me and has helped me both in my personal and professional life.

I have been working as an official guide for some time now, but I have always had this hobby of guiding and accompanying my friends and family visiting Granada.

Can I show you Granada?

I have  taken specific courses at the University of Granada on the Alhambra. I have attended numerous specialised tours of the city by University professors who have helped me to broaden my knowledge of the history of Granada.

I am in love with my city and I want to pass on my enthusiasm to visitors who want to get to know Granada with me. We will visit the most beautiful and emblematic places. Through our walks, enjoying unique views in a quiet and unhurried way.

We will walk through the palatine city of the Nasrid sultans, known worldwide as the Alhambra.

We will visit visit one of the  most beautiful Renaissance cathedrals in Spain.

We will visit the Muslim quarter of the Albaicín and learn about its history, its Cármenes and its Aljibes.

I love Granada!

 For me, it is a privilege to be able to share the history, customs and gastronomy of my city; from the point of view of a granadina.  

All visits are personalised and little groups .

We can speak English, Spanish or French during our tour, as well as advise you on any particular interests you may have in Granada (alternative excursions, places of interest, restaurants, bars, flamenco shows, etc.). 

My main goal is to offer a different, fun and personalised experience, as if you were just another local.

This quarter had its greatest influence during the Nasrid period. The Albaicín maintains the urban grid of the Nasrid period, with narrow streets, in a wide network that extends from the highest part (San Nicolás) to the course of the river Darro.

In 1994, the Albaicín was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO as an extension of the monumental complex of the Alhambra and Generalife.

 

Sacromonte is a picturesque and idyllic place on the outskirts of the city centre of Granada and is the traditional gypsy quarter of Granada. Traditionally they lived in the famous caves of this neighbourhood. They were portrayed with great mastery by the poet Federico García Lorca in his book ‘Romancero Gitano. The Centro de Interpretación del Sacromonte-Museo de las Cuevas preserves 11 of these caves in their original state and explains the history and way of life of their inhabitants.
