Description

Illustrated with spectacular photographs, Spain showcases the jewel of southwestern Europe. From the stunning architecture of Gaudi in Barcelona in the north of the country, to the national parks of Alpujarras and Donana in Andalucia in the south, there are hundreds of miles of sights to explore with every chapter. Explore the Roman influences on the Iberian Peninsula and the vestiges of early Islamic rule in Córdoba. Spain also features everyday lifestyles of the people of the country including markets, food and fabulous flamenco dancing. Leaving the mainland behind, there is plenty more to see on the Canary Islands of Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura and Balearic Islands of Majorca, Ibiza and Minorca to name just a few. Arranged by region, the book explores Spanish tradition and contemporary culture alike from medieval times to the present day. Presented in a portrait format and with expert captions explaining the fascinating stories behind each setting, Spain is a brilliant collection of images.

I have been to Spain a few times and after reading this beautiful book, I want to go back pronto! The photographs are absolutely beautiful - from natural landscapes, architecture, people, food -- it captures it all. There are photos of the running of the bulls, paella, Guggenheim museum in Bilbao among many other images. There is just a little text but each photograph has a very detailed description. The book also covers the Iberian islands (Mallorca is one of my all time favorites) and the Canary Islands. A beautiful book to look at and dream about voyaging in Spain!

Thank you to Netgalley and Amber Books Ltd, for an ARC and I voluntarily left this review.

I have always had a thing for Spain.
I have always had a thing for photos.
And then, this book. It is like taking a trip all around Spain while staying at home. The photos have captured the essence of this sunny, beautiful country. There are big cities, small towns, tiny villages, all things touristy and small, hidden gems, it is all there.
