Blue Guides: Complete Cultural Guides This intelligently planned guide divides Catalonia's capital city into districts centered on a key sight--the Rambla, Gaudi's Sagrada Familia, the old Gothic quarter, and the port district of Barceloneta--while offering ideas for a perfect day in each area. Full color with maps, photographs, and floor plans. About the Series: The art/shop/eat pocket guides combine a great look with the thoroughness of research expected from a Blue Guides publication, making them the perfect choice for the weekend or short break tourist. This intelligently planned series divides each city up into 4-5 districts centred on a key sight and gives ideas for a perfect day in that part of town: the main sights and one or two quirkier ones too, the best places to eat or have a coffee, and some original shopping ideas, presented in an uncluttered and navigable format that respects the reader's intelligence. A good 50% of the book is dedicated to the art and history of the place, distinguishing these useable little books from many guides which are little more than practical information listings.
