An introduction to Catalan History

  • Book: Cathedral of the Sea
  • Location: Barcelona
  • Author: Ildefonso Falcones



Ever wondered what makes Catalonia different and special? That’ll be the people, their character and the history. This novel introduces you to all of these elements in a very readable story. If you are like me, you will make a beeline back to Santa Maria del Mar to see all the things you missed before. Some of the characterisations are rather ‘sensational’ and it gallops through mediaeval history at a huge pace .. but it is very enjoyable if historical fiction is your thing. It’s a good translation too.
