The book

There are as many landscapes as observers. According to Albert Einstein : "The facts are the facts , but the reality is perception" And in terms of beauty, it is so for Catalonia. There are as many looks as possible. This book attracts the eye like an impressionist painting would, where each photo is a brushstroke. It is only afterwards that the memory will put everything in order with emotion and we will then understand how the altarpiece observed is wonderful and unique. This is the view of Catalonia by Yann Arthus Bertrand with his usual magic or what he shows us, thanks to different scales, ranging from broad landscapes or to discrete human strength castellers. The texts of Ramon Folch inform us about the history, culture and places, such an invitation to an unforgettable journey.
