Regular readers of Metropolitan will be very familiar with the work of Nick Lloyd, starting with his Wild in Barcelona columns (first shared with and later taken over completely by Lucy Brzoska) and latterly his historic looks at this city we live in.
Out of his interest in local history came the idea for tours around Barcelona looking at key points from the Spanish Civil War, and these tours are now going from strength to strength. With growing interest from both visitors and residents, the tours have recently been featured in both Catalan newspaper Ara, and British Sunday newspaper, The Observer, with an article in the latter by Stephen Burgen - read here.
If you enjoy Nick's features in the magazine, make sure you don't miss the September 2012 issue that includes the story of Himmler's visit to Barcelona in and his journey to Montserrat, allegedly in a search for the Holy Grail. In the meantime, here you can find links to some of his previously published stories in Metropolitan.
