Farbenfrohe Gaudí-Architektur, stimmungsvolle Plätze im Gotischen Viertel und Entspannung an den neuen Stränden beim Olympiahafen - die Weltmetropole Barcelona gehört seit Jahren zu den beliebtesten Zielen für Städtereisende. Auch Autor Helmuth Bischoff kehrt immer wieder in die katalanische Hauptstadt zurück und beantwortet gleich auf den ersten Seiten des neuen DuMont Reise-Taschenbuchs Barcelona die wichtigsten Fragen für den Besucher: Wie vermeidet man das lästige Anstehen vor den Sehenswürdigkeiten? In welchem Stadtviertel gibt es nette Hotels und wie bewegt man sich am besten in der Stadt? Viertel für Viertel hilft der Reiseführer, in das Innenleben der Stadt einzutauchen und dabei weder die weltberühmten Sehenswürdigkeiten von den Rambles bis zur Sagrada Família zu versäumen noch angesagte Tapasbars, schöne Märkte und originelle Restaurants. Wer ganz besondere Facetten der Metropole erkunden möchte, folgt einer der zehn speziellen Entdeckungstouren - auf den Spuren des jungen Picasso, zu den olympischen Bauwerken auf dem Hausberg Montjuïc oder zu Orten der Erinnerung an die grausame Stadteroberung von 1714. Aktive Städtereisende machen es wie die Einheimischen und joggen, radeln oder skaten die Küstenpromenade entlang nach Norden. Barcelona von oben? Einfach einen der Lieblingsorte des Autors aufsuchen und den traumhaften Ausblick vom Terrassencafé des 'Corte Inglés' genießen. Und wer genug Zeit mitbringt, kann mit dem Ausflugskapitel seine Reise in das Umland von Barcelona ausdehnen.

Spanish architect and designer, Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) was an important and influential figure in the history of contemporary Spanish art. His use of colour, application of a range of materials and the introduction of organic forms into his constructions were an innovation in the realm of architecture. In his journal, Gaudí freely expressed his own feelings on art, “the colours used in architecture have to be intense, logical and fertile.” His completed works (the Casa Batlló, 1905-1907 and the Casa Milà, 1905-1910) and his incomplete works (the restoration of the Poblet Monastery and the altarpiece of Alella in Barcelona) illustrate the importance of this philosophy. His furniture designs were conceived with the same philosophy, as shown, for example, in his own office (1878) or the lamps in the Plaza Real in Barcelona. The Sagrada Familia (1882-1926) was a monumental project which eventually took over his life (it was still incomplete at the time of his death).

This book is an extensive and detailed document about the restoration of one of Antoni Gaudi's foremost works. The Park Guell is a place in which nature and architecture are in perfect dialogue. Although conceived as one of the first garden-cities in Spain, with panoramic views of Barcelona, it was converted into a park in 1922, and is today one of the most visited spaces in the city. The book is structured in three parts --historical antecedents, the restoration of the park, and its current state-- and presents ample graphic documentation, plus an extensive portfolio in colour realised especially for this publication by the photographer Lourdes Jansana.

Barcelona barely has time to take down the bunting between its rollicking festivals — when there isn't an all night fiesta happening on the street, there's more likely a party on the beach (only 10 minutes away) and never any shortage of action in its clubs and bars. Gentler pursuits are also myriad: the city's museums have got it all covered from Picasso and Miro to perfume and an outstanding aquarium. Its galleries are among the most avant-garde in Europe, and its history writ large in the churches and perfectly preserved medieval alleyways of the Barri Gotic. Time Out's local journalists give travelers the inside scoop on where to stay, eat, shop and what to see. Suggested day-trips to coast, country, and city are also included.
