    Good book.

    Good book that focuses on traveling Spain for cheap. It has a decent amount on each city, but where it really shines is in how many cities it covers. Also, it focuses on the great things that you should see in each city rather than trying to cover everything. The one thing the book really lacks is maps...if you're going to spend a while in a big city like Madrid or Barcelona (or another big city) make sure you buy a good map of the city to help you get around.
