A full day of Iberian and medieval history at Pals, Peratallada & Ullastret

WITH
Nicole | about the guide

If you love history and want to travel back in time to discover more about Catalonia’s past, this private tour - covering the historic sites of Ullastret, Peratallada and Pals - is the ideal solution. Discover the village of Ullastret and magnificently preserved ruins of an Iberian hamlet that was built on the banks of the river Daro Vell, dating back to the 5th century B.C. You can still admire large parts of the defensive wall and houses. Explore the fortified medieval town of Peratallada - whose name derives from “pedra tallada” meaning 'carved stone' – and its beautiful passageways and historic buildings constructed from the stone excavated from the castle’s moat. Wander around the historic center of Pals - a picturesque town perched on a hilltop - along its cobbled street, under the stone balconies and past the medieval Romanesque tower dating back the middle ages, known as the Torre de les Hores (Tower of the Hours).

I grew up in Saloniki, Greece. After studying history and working as a guide in Berlin, I visited Barcelona for the first time and immediately felt at home. Together with my sister, touristic guide as well, we decided to create a family tour guiding business in Barcelona. I’ve never looked back, I adore this city and my profession! I’ve had my official guiding license issued by the Catalonian government since 2013. The best part of my job is meeting people and making sure they have a good time. Each day is different, I get to use my languages (German, Greek, English and Spanish) and I avoid being stuck in an office. I’m fascinated by the history of Barcelona and Catalonia and this is reflected in my tours which focus on Medieval villages, the gothic quarter of Barcelona, architecture, Dali and much more. My hobbies? Walking my dog, history, movies, swimming, hiking and travelling. Please note that I also do the same tours that my sister Lydia does, you can see them on her profile page. So don't hesitate to contact me to arrange those tours for you too.
