About the book

In constant transformation since its origins, Barcelona is one of the most dynamic and cosmopolitan cities of the Mediterranean, as well as the meeting point of millions of people from all around the world.

Throughout the centuries, Barcelona's streets and inhabitants have witnessed countless social, cultural and artistic events that have contributed in a decisive way to forging the city's avant-garde, open character. The long history of Barcelona is reflected by its extense architectonic legacy, which encompasses a large variety of styles.

This book on Barcelona portrays the most emblematic monuments and places of the city, from the Gothic Quarter to Port Vell, the most important buildings on the modernist route of Barcelona, such as Sagrada Familia, Park Güell, Casa Batlló and La Pedrera, universal icons in the history of architecture.
