Passionate about architecture, art, literature and languages (she’s also a translator)
TONA INTRODUCES HERSELF
My family calls me Tona (a nickname for Marta). I was born in Lleida, one of the oldest towns in Catalonia, but I moved to Barcelona in order to study Translation and Interpretation at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. And I never left the city…
My passion has always been traveling, so I worked as a guide in Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Russia. Some time later, I passed the exams to become official guide in Barcelona. I am passionate about my city, specially the Old Town, where I live, and I like showing the city off the beaten track, without losing my smile. I love architecture, art and food.
However, I have never forgot my passion for literature and languages. My latest translated book is a theatre play from Greek into Catalan!
My dream: to buy a little house in one of the Greek islands!

She’s fun, great at explaining the local highlights, but she’ll be delighted to take you off the beaten path if you wish

She speaks fluent English and French, and she also speaks good Russian and Greek (but she doesn’t give tours in these two last languages).
