Synopses & Reviews
A trip to Barcelona, Spain, is not soon forgotten. The capital of Catalonia, Barcelona is known for its remarkable architecture, glorious strolls down Las Ramblas, fantastic food, political unrest, and a history that dates back to the arrival of the Romans in the first century before Christ. Pop open a bottle of cava, and enjoy time traveling at its best in Spain's second largest city with Barcelona Then and Now.
Seventy pairs of photographs illustrate then-and-now images of beautiful, historic Barcelona.
Explore the Barri Gotic, the old city's Gothic Quarter, and you'll notice how the narrow cobbled streets where Picasso and Joan Miró once lived have — and haven't — changed with time.
Discover the astounding architectural gifts of Antoni Gaudí as they were then, and as they are today; see Parc Guell, Batllo House and his still unfinished masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia.
Visit the Mercat de la Boqueria, Barcelona's famous food market, and you'll notice it's still a vital part of the city's everyday life.
