Lonely Planet Barcelona Encounter

This guide gets travellers straight to the heart of the locals' city with information on the best street parties (in Gracia), the best markets (Boqueria obviously but also smaller ones such as Placa del Pi and Placa Nova) and the best off-the-beaten-track bars (along Carrer d'Aribau).Its handy bite-sized format is perfect for short trips with style. It features four new local voices for this edition including a British ex-pat who writes novels in Catalan, and Carles Abellan, a top chef with two restaurants in the city.
