This Edition on Northern Spain Features: • Distinguished writers, such as Calvin Trillin, Penelope Casas, Tom Brokaw, Alistair Reid, Sally Schneider, Bruce Schoenfeld, Anya Von Bremzen, and Florence Fabricant, who share seductive insights into Northern Spain’s outstanding restaurants, unique landscape, and cultural treasures, including the Camino de Santiago; the Guggenheim Bilbao; the tapas bars and cafés of San Sebastián, a city where cuisine is taken very seriously; the shrine of Covadonga, considered the birthplace of Spain; the wine-growing district of La Rioja; and the less-traveled routes through the mountains and valleys of the Picos de Europa. • Annotated bibliographies for each section with recommendations for related readings. • An A–Z “informaciones prácticas” (practical information) section covering everything from accommodations, hiking, and museum tours to the significance of the horeo, Basque language and culture, local foods and drink, car rentals, airfares and airlines, travel insurance, and packing.
