"In its architecture, its painting, and its people, the Great Castillian plateau of central Spain is one of the crucibles of European civilization. This book covers about a quarter of Spain's land space, from Burgos in the north to Ciudad Real in the south; from Ciudad Rodrigo in the west to Cuenca in the east. Madrid lies at its heart . . . The strength of this book lies not only in its descriptions of the great set-pieces but also in the author's knowledge of the by-ways of Spain . . . " Book weight approx. 705g.
