Product Details


“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.” —The 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.” —Newsday
