Barcelona books

What you'll find in these books

Recognised all over the world for its cosmopolitan and avant-garde character, Barcelona is one of the great capitals of the Mediterranean.

Barcelona is a city that has an incredible artistic and architectonic wealth, a meeting point that attracts millions of visitors every year.


Since it was founded in the Roman period, the city has been in constant evolution, a fact that is reflected by the heterogeneous appearance of its urban layout. In the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona the main vestiges of the Middle Ages can be found, when the city was the capital of an extensive maritime empire, while the Eixample is where most of the buildings of the ”ruta modernista” are located, amongst them works designed by Antoni Gaudí, such as the Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló and La Pedrera, also known as Casa Milà. These buildings –to which can be added other works such as Park Güell, the Palau de la Música and Casa Lleó i Morera– demonstrate the close connecttion that Barcelona architecture had between the late 19th century and the early 20th century with Modernisme or Catalan Modernism, an artistic movement of unmatched beauty.


Port Vell, la Rambla, Tibidabo and Montjuíc are other popular corners of Barcelona, a city bursting with life that combines busy commercial activity with an important cultural offer, based around institutions such as the Picasso Museum of Barcelona, the Joan Miró Foundation, the Macba and the CCCB.
