Abstract This Globe Trekker episode follows Megan McCormick through Barcelona in the Spanish region of Cataluña. First Megan learns about the "grey years" between the end of the civil war and General Franco's death, when there was a huge zest for change and the finest architects and planners were persuaded to participate. Before the Civil War gripped Barcelona, Art Nouveau architect Antonio Gaudi shaped it more than any other, and Megan observes the buildings. She visits the Maritime Museum, the Miró Foundation art gallery, the El Raval barrio, surrealist painter Salvador Dali's home, the Museum Picasso, and the street artists of the city harbor. She explores the antique shops, bookstores, and young fashion designers of Gothic Area, as well as the Rey de La Magia, founded by famous magician Joachim Partagas 125 years ago. Next, she takes a road trip Cap De Creus, a haven for migratory birds, and enjoys the beach at Sitges, a gay community.
