Barcelona and its surroundings by Kelly Lipscomb

Occupying its own corner in far northwestern Spain above Portugal, Galicia in topography resembles Ireland. It doesn't sound, smell or taste the same as what most have come to expect of Spain, either. The Gallegos are of Celtic origin - the name Galicia having been derived from Gallaeci, the Roman word for Celts.

Every detail is here for the traveler - where to stay, where to eat, entertainment, activities of all kinds, from hiking to canoeing, concerts to festivals. An extensive section on what you need to know when traveling to Spain in general, plus a language and Spanish vocabulary chapter is included.
