Hi! I'm Dolors and I lived in Girona for 10 years I came here to live because I love the history, political and social context, heritage and people of this small but beautiful city. I'm always looking for new secret corners of this city. For all of these reasons I've studied Political Science, Direction and Tourism Planning and Immigration studies. I love showing how people live in Catalonia, the culture, the popular events, fairs, the natural environment, the heritage and as a consequence I've founded Catalonia As a Local, because I love to show how we live in Catalonia, in Girona.
