Meet the Author

Roger Williams is an established Insight Guides author who came to know and love Barcelona during frequent visits to the city from his home on the Costa Brava. He is continually delighted by its contradictions and describes it as a city that is at once one of the most bourgeois in the world and also one of the most avant-garde. Jackie Staddon and Hilary Weston, travel authors and updaters who work in a team, are both regular visitors to Barcelona and love getting reacquainted with old favorites while seeking out new surprises, which this constantly evolving city always delivers.
