Enthusiasm is Leticia’s most defining trait. But this is not a light, casual and comfortable kind of enthusiasm but, rather, that which is born from amazement and that is followed by an insatiable curiosity. Because of this, Leticia never stops searching for new experiences and knowledge, and, although she is native from Madrid, she has travelled through more than twenty countries. She has studied Philosophy, Archaeology, Art, Classical Culture, etc. She loves to share what she learns and her career has always been linked to outreach activities: she has worked as a university professor, has several publications, and participates in international seminars. When she is not conducting our tours or researching, she likes to get lost in the city to explore its most hygge corners.

There is so much to keep you busy in Madrid, but if you want some downtime, grab a picnic, some tinto de Verano and head to the green heart of the city, El Retiro Park. The park is huge, with lots of beautiful fountains and even a boating lake to enjoy.
The Arts are as fascinating as they are complicated. That, however, did not discourage Barbara from dedicating her life to them, and she found herself studying what she was most passionate about History of Art.
