From metropolitan Barcelona spreads a land of such diversity that you could spend weeks dissecting it. The stunning cove beaches of the Costa Brava are the jewel in the tourism crown, but urban fun is to be found in the medieval city of Girona and workaday Figueres.
This guide is the result of research by dedicated authors and local experts who immersed themselves in Catalonia, finding unique experiences, and sharing practical and honest advice, so you come away informed and amazed. This guide includes up-to-date reviews of the best places to stay, eat, sights, cultural information, maps, transport tips and a few best kept secrets - all the essentials to get to the heart of Catalonia.
