This really does seem an ideal book for someone taking a short ish break in Barcelona. Reasonably priced and fits in a large pocket, it is fairly easily readable compared to some of the compact guides. The map was very useful and we saw all the main sights we wanted to by reference to this book. A couple of tips - buy the latest version only - this was and one or two things had already changed (the name of a cafe we were looking for for example). The other one - if you want to see the Sagrada Familia (Gaudi's church still being built) you can save a lot of time by booking a slot online before you get there - not mentioned in this book. The queues were around the block for most of the days. Well worth the money if you are heading there and don't know the city.

Excellent pocket guide, not too bulky or heavy so it will be easy to put in a handbag while we are visiting the city

This style of guide is easy to read, give great ideas for where to go and what to see. It is in a well laid out format, which I think is better than other guides. It's a handy size and easily fits into my handbag. Would always look for this brand first when going to a new place.

We only had four days to explore all that Barcelona had to offer so this book came in really handy to narrow down the top 'must sees'. I love DK Eyewitness books for their relevant information and loads of photos, and the sturdy map that was included was really useful. Would definitely recommend

Not everyone will agree on the author's choice of the top 10 attractions in Barcelona, but this is a useful little guide just the same. Unfortunately, as with their similar guide to Eastern Sicily which I purchased earlier in the year, DK have done absolutely nothing to make the map of Barcelona - which could be really useful - of sufficient sharpness to be readable, let alone capable of being enlarged or searched. There is nothing in the technology to prevent this, so in my opinion this is just laziness, especially when you consider that DK's printed books have exceptionally good graphics. Buy it for a short trip to Barcelona, but then by a one-Euro map from the an official tourist kiosk. And consider other sources of info about Barcelona.

These guides are perfect for carrying around in a small bag... unlike the bigger guides that stay in the hotel room... the maps are small, but have enough detail to find you way around.

If I am visiting a city I usually buy the DK Top 10 guide. This one lives up to the high expectations I have of them. The guides are excellently presented and produced on quality glossy paper in a convenient, pocket-sized format. Superb photos backed up by the key information needed to plan and to make the most of a stay of a few days in a city.
I waited for the recent 2013 re-issue of the Barcelona Guide. I did notice that price information was not up to date - for example the entry fee to Palau de Musica Catalana was €15 in the guide but is now €17. However, the guide more than warrants it's 5 stars.

Well structured book, clear maps and recommendations for a first or even second visit
Handy size
Will look for other city guides by the same publisher in future

This book was so popular that I had trouble borrowing it back from family members. At least they knew where we were going. I just followed.

Bought this guide for a recent trip to Barcelona. It was very useful though I did supplement it heavily with research beforehand on line. Be aware also that the book’s plans and maps are very difficult to read on the Kindle, the lack of colour and no enlargement for diagrams feature mean that you really have to get a map. I picked up several free leaflets with maps as soon as I arrived that served me well. The book was useful to have on my Kindle as no extra weight and good value for money.
