Born and raised in the architecturally stunning Recoleta neighborhood of Buenos Aires, my childhood was surrounded with beautiful art and culture. My neighborhood is home to some of the city’s most majestic palaces. As a child, I used to run around pretending I was royalty as I would walk by these beautiful buildings, and to some extent, I still do that today when I give my tours. I love imagining what life was like in the heyday of these palaces.

That same imagination and curiosity for history lead me to leave Argentina at the young age of 22. For 10 years of my life, I lived in Spain and spent my free time exploring Europe. This period of my life really cemented my passion for traveling. I would play pretend in palaces all around Europe while learning so much about the history along the way. While I adored my time abroad, I longed for the Buenos Aires’s unique beauty. Upon returning to Argentina, I studied business, education, and tourism to jumpstart my career as a tour guide. Pretending to be royalty and sharing all that I love about Buenos Aires is the greatest job I could have asked for. Come step back in time with me, as we discover the city’s most beautiful palaces.
