Barcelona, una biografía / Barcelona, a Biography


From the medieval port that gave birth to a Mediterranean empire to the turbulent and prosperous industrial city that gave rise to Modernism, heroic and infamous episodes have occurred: sieges and discoveries, quixotic visits and universal comedy characters, saints and villains, writers and leaders, architects and navigators. So it was before, from its Roman foundation, and so has remained in our era.

The history of Barcelona is the root of this fascinating book: an epic, entertaining and informative account about the city that seduces visitors from all around the world and which is the origin of some of the most popular fiction stories in recent literature, from The Truth about the Savolta
case to The Shadow of the Wind.
