Completely updated every year (unlike most of the competition), Frommer's Spain features gorgeous color photos of the cities, villages, and countryside vistas that make a trip to Spain magical. We'll show you the best of the big cities: Madrid, with its tapas bars, nonstop nightlife, and the world-class Prado Museum; Barcelona, with Gaudí's wild modernist architecture, the astounding Picasso Museum, and the colorful street life of La Rambla; and Seville, from its monumental Gothic cathedral to the locals' favorite flamenco clubs. We'll take you into the countryside, where you can stay in historic paradors, tour the best sherry wineries in Andalusia, retrace the steps of Christian pilgrims in Galicia, and follow the careers of visionary artists like Salvador Dalí (in Cadaques) and El Greco (in charming, romantic Toledo). And we'll guide you to the country's best beaches, from the islands of Majorca and Ibiza to the mega-resorts along the Costa del Sol. Frommer's makes it easy to explore Spain as an independent traveler, always knowing that you have good advice, complete information, and helpful maps at your fingertips. It's all done with the trademark Frommer's attention to style, accuracy, and detail. Also included are an in-depth guide to Spain's art and architecture, as well as all the latest trip-planning advice on everything from bargain airfares to rail passes.
