About us

Guiding Architects

We are a team of local architects, experts in organising tours in Andalusia focusing on architecture, urban planning and landscaping. We belong to the International Association of Guiding Architects and we conduct tours in German, French, English and Spanish.

All of our guides are architects living in Andalusia, who practise architecture here, and who know firsthand all about the local contemporary and historic constructions of every town and city. We provide the visitor with broad knowledge of local architecture and urban planning, and a deep comprehension of the circumstances, features and possibilities involved.

Andalusia

Andalusia is a mosaic of city centres with outstanding contemporary and historic architecture nestled in diverse landscapes and geographical contexts. The architecture dialogues: the relationship between different construction periods which have each added to it, not subtracted. Therefore, there are cities, villages and settlements featuring the overlapping of many historic layers, resulting in Andalusia being one of the regions with the most unique architecture of the Iberian Peninsula.

GA Andalusia is part of the Association of Guiding Architects, an international network of independent professionals who combine travel with architecture. The members of Guiding Architects provide high quality, insightful and instructive tours, being privy to and having excellent connections within local architecture industry in more than 40 destinations all around the world.

About Blanca

I am Blanca, an architect from the University of Seville (2003), specializing in Andalusian heritage, city and architecture. Master's Degree in Architecture and Historical Heritage (2006-2007) and PhD from the University of Granada (2015).
I have worked in projects of restoration and value creation of the heritage in the Alhambra and in other historic cities, which has allowed me to acquire a deep knowledge about its structures and main elements. I have also been a teacher and researcher at the University of Granada where I learned didactic techniques and started with the dissemination of knowledge. For years I have dedicated part of my work to the spread of architecture, and in particular the importance of contemporary architecture with urbanism and historical heritage.
