Fodor's Guide to Stop

Jump to last reply

I just borrowed from the library the 2015 Fodor's Guide for Spain, what a pleasant surprise. I am not sure when they made all these changes but they are welcome. They have added significant sections on a number of areas including the Pyrenees and offer more and accurate detail on food. One of the subtle changes I liked was writing the names of certain attractions and hotels in the local language such as Catalan, Basque and Gallego. I felt that the writers truly had a feel for the country, rather than the dull recapitulation of the past.

Bravo Fodor's.

(They could have been doing this for years and I simply didn't know about it.)
