Product Description

Barcelona has existed as a settlement for two millennia. Early civilizations shaped the city before it achieved, in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, global power as a trading metropolis and empire capital. After a long struggle with the unifying Spanish state, the city revived, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, as an industrial and commercial powerhouse. It became a center of culture, ornamented by modern planning and wondrous works by Gaudí and others. Barcelona became known as “The Rose of Fire”: home to revolutionaries and anarchists. Creativity and conflict continued to shape Barcelona in the twentieth century, as its citizens faced the Spanish Republic, Civil War and Franco’s dictatorship. Linking social and cultural currents to the rich architectural and experiential heritage of this multi-layered city, Mc

Donogh and Martínez-Rigol reveal Barcelona’s hidden history to modern-day visitors and residents alike.

Product Reviews



Donogh and Martínez-Rigol have mastered the material thoroughly, interpreted it wisely, marshalled it deftly, and handled it with impressive sensitivity. The result is objective but never bland, thoughtful but never ponderous, clear but never oversimplified: a comprehensive and up-to-date survey, which uses the city as a document of its own history and captures a lot of Barcelona's elusive character. It will enhance visitors' experience and guide students' approach.”Felipe Fernandez-Armesto, University of Notre Dame, Indiana“A dream journey through the Mediterranean city’s history, both combining deep knowledge and stories, external and internal complementary points of view, architectural and social aspects, multidisciplinary and multigenerational visions.”Carles Carreras, University of Barcelona
