About the author (2010)

The spark was lit on a short trip over the Pyrenees to Barcelona during a summer jaunt in southern France. It was Damien's first taste of Spain and he found something irresistible about the place - the way the people moved, talked and enjoyed themselves. Damien came back years later, living in medieval Toledo, frenetic Madrid and, finally, settling in Barcelona. He has ranged across the country, from the Picos de Europa to the Sierra Nevada, from Córdoba to Cáceres, and slurped cider in Asturias and gin in the Balearic Islands. For this edition of Spain he also wrote the Getting Started, Events Calendar, Culture, Architecture, Directory and Transport chapters. Damien has authored Barcelona, Madrid, Mallorca, the Canary Islands and the now defunct Catalunya & the Costa Brava for Lonely Planet.
