I’m Mar Hurtado and I was born in Granada on the 12th of October 1986. I have always felt a special connection to the history of my city and I admit that I have a wish: I wish that the stones could speak! But, since this isn’t the case, I spend my time interpreting them.
I graduated in History of Art in 2010 and from then on, every route seems to have led me to Cicerone.
I started receiving training from the Fundación el Legado Andalusí and I continued working in exhibitions for the Obra Social de la Caixa. Later on, I worked on important monuments in Granada like the Madrasa and the Fundación Rodríguez-Acosta.
I consider myself to be a very curious person and I always have something lined-up to research. I tend to have lots of books on the go, and above all, I never cease to be surprised by new stories. I like wandering around the Albayzin and Sacromonte, by the old wall that borders the city, as well as going outside the walls.
I look for remnants of the past that help me to understand the millennial city of Granada, so that I can proudly show them to travellers who want to delve into it all.
