This brief history of Barcelona, beginning in Roman times and continuing into the present day, is followed by a guide to the city's architecture: from the stately palaces of the Gothic quarter to the seedy backstreets of the Barrio Chino and the remarkable modern creations of visionary architects like Antoni Gaudi and Eluis Domenech I Montaner. Other chapters provide a guide to the city's night life, looking at everything from opera to theatre and modern jazz. With the help of this guide, those who prefer more peaceful means of relaxation can retire to the city's green spaces. A celebration of Catalan cuisine is accompanied by a guide to Barcelona's bars and restaurants.
