A newly published book, ‘Catalunya de Pel·lícula’ or ‘Catalonia Movie Walks’ in English, offers 25 trails, covering 300 sites across 145 Catalan municipalities, that have together featured in over 175 films.
The book, written by author Eugeni Osácar and published by the Editorial Department of the Catalan Tourism Agency, was presented on Thursday at the Palau Robert by Catalan Minister for Enterprise and Employment, Felip Puig.
The guide features 11 maps, accessible from phones and tablets by QR codes, and the reader can use Google Maps to track the route. In addition, it boasts 150 spectacular photographs, combined with other little known facts of historical interest.
The book has also been published in English under the title ‘Catalonia Movie Walks’. The book’s promoters are keen to reach an international audience, and to demonstrate, in an original way, how the places tourists visit are linked to their interests and hobbies.
