"Confirms…Mr. Hughes’s authority as a first-rate chronicler and historian. The book is destined to become, like Forster’s Alexandria and Mary McCarthy’s Venice Observed, a classic."
The New York Times Book Review

"Authoritative, carefully researched, and full of insights into the city’s great heritage…his judgments are full of tolerant and good-humored fascination….There is no single volume in either Catalan or Spanish that approaches this book in scope or detail…a superb achievement and a great pleasure to read."
Washington Post Book World

"Brilliant…an extraordinary book that combines history, criticism of the arts and architecture, and a profound sympathy for the moral essence of a people."
New York Newsday
