Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Spain's vibrancy and passion is brought alive in this colorful, comprehensive guide. Filled with in-depth information and practical travel tips, it features cut-away illustrations, detailed maps (including street-by-street city maps), and sumptuous pictures. Organized into chapters by cities and areas, it guides readers to the leading sites (including Madrid, Catalonia and Valencia, Basque Country, Barcelona, Castille, Andalucia, and the Balearics and Canaries) and to many of the lesser known ones. An elaborate introduction to Spanish history and culture provides context. Special in-depth sidebars discuss Spanish wines, Gaudi and modernism, flamenco, and more; while guided tours include drive among Aragon's castles and around the Mudejar towns, and a walk around Madrid's enchanting Plaza Major. An extensive travel planner details practicalities, including where to find the most memorable posadas and best tapas bars.
