Meet the Author

Veteran travel writer Darwin Porter wrote the fi rst ever Frommer’s guide to Spain. Back then it was called Spain on $5 a Day, and it became an immediate best seller in the travel book business. The only good thing about those dark days of the Franco era were the $2 hotel rooms, the $1.50 paella dinners, and the 25¢ glasses of Rioja wine. Spain has changed drastically since then, and the new Frommer’s Spain has kept up with the developments. Porter was joined in 1982 by Spanish-speaking Danforth Prince, formerly of the Paris bureau of The New York Times. Together, they have also written such Iberian guides as Frommer’s Lisbon, Frommer’s Barcelona, Frommer’s Madrid, and Frommer’s Seville, Granada, & the Best of Andalusia.
