A bigger scale metro map would have been useful (writing was quite small).
Decent enough for a long weekend in Barcelona and reasonably priced.
Doesn't mention the proliferation of wifi in the city. All the main attractions have wifi that extends to the street outside (which we discovered explains most of the crowds - they aren't queueing!) We used a tourist bus to get to know the city, and the QR codes prominently placed outside each attraction (with their wifi) to book tickets for entry later on. You can then also download the app for each attraction (!) which gives you the detailed info that the pocket guide doesn't.
The wifi on the tourist buses is a white lie though. They have it, but you have to get a username and password from a very confused attendant on every bus.
Best attraction for kids - Gaudi in 4D on the way up to Park Guell - go near the start of your holiday. Fifteen minutes of brilliant fun, and it means you'll recognise the buildings later, and really "get" the art. Enjoy.
It is alway good to do research before you go to a city but it is handy to have a pocket guide to dip into.
