Hello! I’m Lucía Caparrós. I was born on the 30th of April and ever since then I have always known what I wanted to do. I graduated in History of Art in 2006 and since then, I have been training to specialise in the city of Granada. Especially through reading.
I have been working in the tourism sector for more than 10 years. At first it was on and off as a tour guide for school children and elderly people across Andalusia, some of the painting exhibitions at the Museo de la Alhambra (Alhambra Museum), as well as some of Granada’s monuments like the Fundación Rodríguez-Acosta or the Madrasa.
Granada from all angles and in all its hues just fascinates me. Besides going to the cinema and reading, what I most enjoy doing in my free time is travelling and losing myself in the maze-like streets where you find the best frame for shots. I like finding the small things help make sense of it all and sharing them.
Today, as part of Cicerone I have the opportunity to enjoy and share Granada’s sensations on a daily basis: The woody climb up to the paradise that is the Alhambra, going back to the most mysterious past of the old Albayzin, the magnificent sunsets from the gypsy Sacromonte, enjoying the cocktail of sensations that hit you when entering buildings as unique and historic as the Royal Chapel or the Cathedral, etc.
So, really it’s about seeing even the most hidden but also the most charming corners, that only locals tend to know about.
