Three & a half stars,
This review is from: Lonely Planet Pocket Barcelona (Travel Guide) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A compact pocket guide that covers the main bases of what to see, where to go, and how to organise your sightseeing. It's enough for a first-timer on a long weekend, and as long as you don't expect anything too "off the beaten track" it'll direct you to the usual tourist fayre.
The map is a handy inclusion but is way too small scale to guide you around the tighter pedestrianised shopping streets (e.g. between La Rambla and the Cathedral), so best to upgrade to something a little larger in scale.
An easy 3 stars on format & content, but not quite a 4 star.
