Lidia from ForeverBarcelona



I come from a family that is a mix of Northwestern Spanish and Catalan, something very common in Barcelona. I started my Art History studies in the University of Santiago de Compostela, then studied Logistics with the Open University of Catalunya (UOC). I also studied Tourism and I got my tourguide license in 1993.

After developing other activities such as being a travel agent and being involved in other industries, I’ve been focused on fulltime guiding since 2007. Marta and I met on a training seminar for tourguides a couple of years ago, Marta liked my style and invited me to collaborate with ForeverBarcelona.

I am of restless nature: I like writing, traveling and sharing my passion about Barcelona and Catalonia.

Now I’m living in a town in the suburbs, but I spend most of my time in Barcelona. I’m the proud mother of a lovely little girl, so I don’t need to tell you that I’m great touring with families!

What we love about her

Lidia is an excellent guide, extremely knowledgeable and totally decided to give you detailed background information of the sites she’s showing you. With her you’ll get a deep understanding of the sites and you’ll also learn a lot with her though-provoking descriptions.

At the same time, she’s fun and pleasant, and you’ll have a delightful experience with her.

with us since 2012


Her English is excellent, and she also speaks fluent French (she’s lived in England and France for a while).

This is why everyone raves about Lidia:

Sara Laden (USA)

Our trip to Spain would not have been the same without her to guide us.

Lidia, our excellent ForeverBarcelona guide, had insider information and stories about Gaudi, ancient Barcelona and the nooks and crannies to visit off the beaten path. My 17 year old niece and I enjoyed our tour and would recommend it for anyone.

Lydia is amazing and has the energy to teach you, guide you, and keep your time on point. Best of all, she had the empathy to watch mother who is elderly and was on a wheelchair whenever she couldn’t do steps.

 Just what you want in a guide to make a tour what it should be.

We could have stayed for hours in Sagrada Familia, and Lidia would not have exhausted her knowledge!

Robert T (Lansingerland, Netherlands)

Thrilled by the whole experience.

GtravellerP (Burlington, Canada)

The tour was perfect. Couldn’t have asked for anything more. She was able to bypass lines and was a wealthy of information catering for all of us (ages from 2-80). Would highly recommend!

Janet B (Houston, Texas, USA)

Lidia is an amazing guide. We spent 4 days with her and enjoyed every moment. She is full of historical, artistic, political knowledge and much more. When you are with a licensed tour guide in Barcelona you get special perks. La Sagrada Familia would have been a different experience (not better) if we had attempted it alone. I can’t say enough about Lidia and dealing with Marta at ForeverBarcelona. Simple and pleasurable !
