Publisher's Summary

On this walk through Barcelona, you'll experience the "visual architectural party" of the city's streets; wander the Boqueria Market, Europe's largest, where produce is art and every possible kind of seafood is on brilliant display; ramble through the Rambunctious Ramblas; stop for hot chocolate and churros and learn how chocolate came to Barcelona; walk through a lush, green cloister with its bubbling fountains and gabbling geese; wonder at Gaudi's fantastical, undulating, brilliantly colored buildings; sip Cava and sample scrumptious seafood at a countertop bar; see the alabaster basin where six Caribbean Indians were baptized after arriving with Columbus; experience ancient Roman columns in a peppermint green jewel of a building; see Barcelona's Bridge of Sighs and taste some tapas; visit the Catalan Gothic Cathedral and learn the gruesome story of the city's patron saint; shop homemade cheeses and wines in a church courtyard; walk the streets of the ancient Jewish Ghetto and see where Don Quixote watched an early printing press at work; and sip at the fountain that "guarantees" a return visit to Barcelona.
