About 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.
