Description
Full-color throughout. Free full-color, foldout map. Completely updated every year. Insider advice on avoiding the crowds as you hit all the highlights of the 17 semi-autonomous regions of Spain, from the Prado in Madrid to the Guggenheim in Bilbao, from El Escorial to Granada's Alhambra. Plus tips for navigating the country's lovely but less-traveled corners, including Galicia in the northwest and the Balearic Islands in the east. Where to find the absolute best paella in Valencia, the loveliest vineyards in Rioja, the hottest tapas in Seville, and the finest suckling pig in Segovia. Insightful commentary on Spain's dazzling array of art and architectural masterpieces, from the Old World classicism of Velazquez to the modernism of Picasso and Dali. Opinionated reviews. No bland descriptions and lukewarm recommendations. Our expert writers are passionate about their destinations--they tell it like it is in an engaging and helpful way. Exact prices listed for every establishment and activity--no other guides offer such detailed, candid reviews of hotels and restaurants. We include the very best, but also emphasize moderately priced choices for real people. User-friendly features including star ratings and special icons to point readers to great finds, excellent values, insider tips, best bets for kids, special moments, and overrated experiences.
