Alberto was friendly, courteous and respectful. He took all around the city and then gave me a map with markings to all the areas we visited. He stopped at a souvenir shop and patiently waited for me to buy my souvenirs then carried the bag to the car. Great guide!

Keep in mind that you need more time exploring everything. Also there are little explanations in English, so for someone who is not an expert in Spanish art or doesn't speak Spanish a guide is needed. Besides that the collected exponents are definitely a must see.

beautiful, well organized, I recommend the terrace because the view from there is wonderful !!!

It's worth seeing :) but I recommend the morning hours because there are crowds later

Beautiful architecture and art pieces ! Definitely recommend if you’re into art
