Product Description:
Spain vies with France as the most heavily-visited European nation, and Madrid and Barcelona are its two most heavily-visited cities. But while our authors are infatuated with both cities, about which they have written several earlier travel guides (and food commentaries), they also devote considerable attention to side-trips out of Madrid (to Toledo, Cuenca, Segovia, Avila, Salamanca and Zamora) and out of Barcelona (to Tarragona, Sitges and Girona), to which they returned for this new Easy Guide. The result: a surprisingly comprehensive look (in 256 pages) at many of Spain's most compelling locations, with updated and newly-researched advice for 2015 and beyond.
