Lonely Planet Writer. Top 10 architectural gems of Barcelona. Barcelona is fairly festooned with buildings to ogle. The creative buzz continues into the 21st century, with Jean Nouvel's eye-catching Torre Agbar leading the way.

  • Kaghma
Excellent Guide for Barcelona, almost all you can find on this amazing city. Make sure to also ask locals about another places to check while in Barcelona.

Maps were completely unreadable.
Very difficult to flip between text and the relevant maps. I had to actually go and buy the the hard copy.
I WANT MY MONEY BACK!

I only use LP travel guides. Won't be using the ebook version til they bring themselves into the 21st century. Let me know when this happens.

Very disappointed.
  • Rich Vulture
The maps and recommendations were great. We did their walking tours and tried some of the restaurants they recommended. Their assessments of the neighborhoods and what was worthwhile was very accurate. The organization of information is more intuitive and budget-conscious than with the Fodors guide I was using for a different location.
  • Jark
excellent suource of information, I especially like the ides for walking tours.
  • Oghmaghma
This book is filled with helpful information about hotels, transportation and sights. I have found that I like Rick Steve's books even better. Both are helpful for travel planning.
  • Lanin
Awesome city and perfect guide with this book. Was nice to discover the city through the pages in this guide

I went to Barcelona recently, and in the planning of the trip I consulted four guide books:

Lonely Planet's Barcelona City Guide

Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness Barcelona and Catalonia

Cadogan Guides Barcelona (Dana Facaros and Michael Pauls)

Time Out Barcelona

All of them were good. I took two with me: Lonely Planet and Eyewitness.

The reasons I chose those two:

LP specialises in listings, which seemed to be more up-to-date and comprehensive than either Time Out or Cadogan, It also had a good Excursions section which helped a couple of times when I travelled beyond the city. I also liked a couple of the walking routes they recommended. Information on matters such as public transport is comprehensive and detailed. I like the chapters on history, architecture and food as well.

I took Eyewitness because it unfailingly has a good quality map, which in my view is LP's downfall. Eyewitness always includes a Street Finder Index which LP does not, and LP often misses out on streets other than the major ones, which can be very frustrating, especially in a city like Barca where there are many alleyways. I never use Eyewitness for hotels - the information is scant and usually more expensive than my (more Lonely Planet) budget, but it has fantastic colour photos and cutaways of buildings, and illustrations which place buildings within their streetscapes. It's a nice book to read on the bus or train going somewhere.

Time Out's great strength was in helping to plan. It had a huge array of hotels, and if you were especially interested in nightlife, I would take Time Out. I was there primarily for a conference, and many of my evenings were organised. And I'm also night a great nightclubber, perhaps contrary to Barca lifestyle!! If you are - consider Time Out. Its maps were pretty good, but not comprehensive for the area I was staying in, beachside Barceloneta.

That is where the Cadogan guide excelled. Its maps were so good that I pulled them out of the book and took them with me. I would have taken the whole book, but for the weight in my suitcase! Its info about places and sights seemed accurate and comprehensive.
I've always found LP guidebooks helpful - they fit our budget, have an interesting range of suggestions for sights to see, and are usually dead-on with descriptions. This was the first one that let us down on our travels. It is very frustrating for two people new to a city to make their way, starving at 3 pm, to a "highly recommended" restaurant and find it no longer in business. And this happened to us thrice! Two restaurants had closed down, and one had changed name and ownership. We had also taken DK's Real City Barcelona guide, and this was much more useful. Its choices were affordable (look for the check mark next to the listing that indicates a good deal), diverse and filled with locals - always a positive sign.
I did still use Lonely Planet for planning itineraries for our days in Barcelona, but feel the book has lost some of the go-to quality that I once associated with LP guides. Time for a new edition, and one that thoroughly investigates what goes between the covers!
