What a great book! If you are tired of the usual guides always giving you the same information, check this one out. It is full of anecdotes, history, legends, and with tons of curious and wild places to visit. And yes, there are maps, so it is easy to find the places.

This is the prefect guide for people who are a bit bored with the usual places found in regular guides. Did you know Spain has it's own toothfairy: a mouse called Perez. And you can actually go visit his house! Great guide.
