Montserrat Cardona guide and CEO of argonautbarcelona.com and argonautaviatges.com
Montserrat Cardona founder of the Argonauts

My name is Montserrat Cardona. I was born in the Old Town of Barcelona. My main interests are architecture and anthropology. I’ve worked in many countries (always in the tourist sector) and became a licensed guide in 2003. I believe the historical center of a city is the key to understanding that city’s origins and transformation throughout the centuries. It is the beating heart of its citizens. On our walking tours we will gain insights into the places I love.

I’m also passionate about our architect Gaudí and his achievements. Not stopping at the extraordinary surface aesthetics of his buildings, I would also like to show you the incredible structure that supports Casa Milà or the Sagrada Familia. I’m fluent in English, French, Italian and Greek, and native in Catalan and Spanish.

Now, what I most enjoy is sharing my favorite places with you, the passionate traveler. Argonauts are travelers who care about values and sustainability, about the meaning and the experience of traveling. I create both this site and a Facebook group for anybody wishing to share their experiences, in any language. We look forward to reading to your contribution.

My name is Tate Cabré, a writer and a tour guide. I love the idea of the Argonaut-guides, each one of us providing a different skill to make your voyage unique.

I have been working as a full-time journalist for most of my life, only starting to combine writing with tour guiding five years ago. My field is the 20th century heritage, specially Gaudí, Catalan Modernism (Art Nouveau), Art Deco, Colonial style, and funerary art. I have also written many guidebooks on these topics, most of them translated into English. Feel free to look me up on the internet!

In our tours we will get a glimpse into the lifeblood of the city while reading the stories written on its stones. You will taste the delicious street food of Barcelona blended with the flavour of history.
