Carlos Zanón and Lara Costafreda take us on a personal, unique, and impassioned journey through the streets of the Catalan capital.

Leading us up and down Las Ramblas, from the heights of Montjuïc to the fading evening light of the Gothic Quarter, the book also touches on the novels and writers that have described Barcelona, the legacy of Antoni Gaudí, the elusive perspective of Pepe Carvalho, and the author’s lost memories in his home district of Horta-Guinardó. Zanón paints an intimate portrait of the city while artist Lara Costafreda illustrates the human, cosmopolitan side of a mixed-heritage, cultured, contradictory capital that exudes an air of perpetual change.

«You can’t get angry with Barcelona for long because all of the good and bad that she does is done without deliberate intent. Nervous, electrifying, skittish, a rascal, a pyromaniac, addicted to the romanticism of the literary salon, the Wagnerian epic, and the endless melodrama of the bourgeois novel.»
