2.0 out of 5 stars
Don't buy this guide, 29 May 2014
I normally like Lonely Planet guides, however the Pocket Barcelona guide is poor in many aspects. The fold out map doesn't cover enough Barcelona. The metro map is far too small. Neither me or my husband could use it even when we wore our glasses! We used the metro map that came with our 4 day travel tickets. You can send off for these in advance, which is handy advice I found out from the internet, but is not in the book.
The opening times for a number of popular attractions are wrong. Luckily I looked them up online before going and wrote the correct times into the guide. The small maps a slightly useful, otherwise I would have given it one star.
We ended up using an app guide (Ulmon) that I had previously downloaded and the free map from the hotel.
I did use the guide to help plan out itinerary, but could have done this solely from the internet. If you want to buy a guide, don't buy this one.
