really liked it

I've read this in preparation for my trip to Barcelona. It is a history of that city and region (Catalonia) as seen by Robert Hughes. While he's done his research, it's clear it's history through his eyes and mind and he is highly opinionated. It is part of the fun. When it comes to descriptions of architecture and art, he is even more opinionated. But I feel I have a good idea of what the people might be like--although I might have to channel Robert Hughes to really know.
