Barcelona is the gem of Catalonia, abundant in rich and colourful architecture and design: undoubtedly one of Europe's most beautiful and visually-inspiring cities. Inside Barcelona reveals the historic interiors of a wide and varied range of the most fascinating buildings.
Specially-commissioned photographs by the internationally-renowned Peter Aprahamian capture the essence of these works, from the unforgettable houses of Antoni Gaudi and modernista neo-gothic of Josep Cadalfach, to the grandeur of the Opera House and the intimacy of an old candle shop. The city's cutting-edge hotels, restaurants, cinemas and civic buildings are also featured to offer a striking architectural blend.
Following a lively introduction, each photograph is accompanied by a short text that reveals historical anecdotes attached to the interior and points out all the original features and aspects of architectural and design interest.
The author brings to each description his 'insider' insight: the seductive result is that the images and text combine to provide a unique record of the hidden interiors of this remarkably diverse city.
