About This Book
Barcelona is a top European destination for American travelers, and this stunning full color guide contains magazine-style features illustrating the city's biggest draws, from the cutting-edge cuisine to the dizzying heights of Gaudí's architecture. The city springs to life with colorful spreads covering quintessential experiences from the famous Boqueria market to the sunny beaches.

Expanded Coverage:
New shopping coverage highlights the top neighborhoods to boutique-hop, complete with illustrations, maps, and spots for refueling. Craft studios, jewelry shop, and pastry emporiums are covered in addition to Barcelona’s cutting-edge design.  Nightlife is revamped to include a lively mix of tapas bars and clubs that tempt readers to keep Spain’s late-night hours. A new illustrated feature on the Basque Country brings to life the Bilbao coverage in our Side Trips chapter.

Illustrated Features:
Gaudí’s riveting masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia, is captured in both sweeping full-page photos and detailed close-ups. Another Gaudí feature covers all of his bright and bombastic landmarks around the city, including a walk that connects several major monuments. A seven-page illustrated feature on Spanish wine gives our readers a primer on great sips. And spotlights throughout the guide feature tapas, wine bars, the Boqueria market, and the city’s best beaches giving travelers an unparalleled sense of Barcelona.

Indispensable Trip Planning Tools:
Tips on when to visit each neighborhood and the city’s major monuments, how and where to order the best Spanish wine, and which beaches are best for sunbathing versus surfing all help our readers navigate the city.  And our city walk leads readers from the well-trafficked Rambla to the little gourmet counter of Quim de la Boqueria.
