About Vanessa
Vanessa studied art history at the University of Barcelona (UB), completing the last year of her degree at the University of Parma (Italy). Following university, she lived in London, absorbing the rich arts and culture scene. When she moved back to Barcelona, Vanessa worked in art galleries and museums, including the National Museum of Art of Catalunya (MNAC), and contemporary art museum CAIXAFORUM. In 2006, Vanessa became a licensed tour guide in Barcelona. Since the very first tour she led, she loved meeting and connecting with new people, while sharing her passion and enthusiasm for arts. Vanessa lives in the heart of Barcelona, a mere two-minute walk from the Picasso Museum. She was born close to the land south of Catalonia that inspired Joan Miró, and she loves to spend her weekends in the Empordà, north of Catalonia, where Salvador Dalí was born. Inspiring visitors to fall in love with Barcelona and to plan their next trip before they even leave is her goal for every tour she leads.
