As a young man, Arnau joins the powerful guild of stoneworkers and helps to build the church with his own hands, while his best friend and adopted brother Joanet studies to become a priest. With time, Arnau prospers and falls secretly in love with a forbidden woman. But when he is betrayed and hauled before the Inquisitor, he finds himself face-to-face with Joanet.

Barcelona barely has time to take down the bunting between its rollicking festivals — when there isn't an all night fiesta happening on the street, there's more likely a party on the beach (only 10 minutes away) and never any shortage of action in its clubs and bars. Gentler pursuits are also myriad: the city's museums have got it all covered from Picasso and Miro to perfume and an outstanding aquarium. Its galleries are among the most avant-garde in Europe, and its history writ large in the churches and perfectly preserved medieval alleyways of the Barri Gotic. Time Out's local journalists give travelers the inside scoop on where to stay, eat, shop and what to see. Suggested day-trips to coast, country, and city are also included.
