Editorial Reviews

"In vibrant color photography, Ciobanu covers the gamut in the city of Barcelona, from major attractions to hidden corners. Additionally, it's a well-detailed travel guide in prose that's both concise and informative. As a memento of the experience, or something to whet your appetite about what the city has to offer, you're not going to going to find a much better coffee table book about the city." - Self-Publishing Review
