en Limba Engleză Hardback – 15 mar 2021
Spain’s top city for tourism, Madrid attracts more than six million visitors a year. In this book, Helen Crisp and Jules Stewart not only place visitor attractions in their historical perspective, relating the story of a city and its people through the centuries, but they also offer carefully curated listings that give a nod to well-known attractions and sites, as well as hidden gems. Spain’s political and art capital, with its “Golden Triangle” of museums and myriad art galleries, Madrid is also a city of dazzling nightlife, with a profusion of cafés and bars. Offering in-depth insight into the history of Madrid along with a view—from fiestas to football—into life in the city today, this is the story of a vibrant, energetic metropolis, one that remains an enigma to many outsiders.

“I realize that it is the many layers of Madrid that I encountered on that initial visit that make the city so remarkable—layers that this excellent book luxuriates in, as it plots the twists and turns of history that have shaped the city. . . . A splendid guide, delivered in charming and frequently amusing prose that displays a deep affection for the city and its inhabitants.”
