Globe Trekker

Northern Spain (#206)

In Barcelona, Shilpa explores the city's rich architecture, tries Flamenco dancing and watches the Catalan tradition of building human castles. She runs with the bulls in Pamplona, samples tapas in the Basque region of San Sebastian and visits a school for young bullfighters in Madrid. In the northwest, Shilpa later joins the Pilgrim Trail, arriving in the picturesque city of Santiago in time to celebrate the anniversary of the death of Spain's patron Saint James. Her journey ends at Cabo Finisterre, literally meaning "the end of the earth," a virtually unpopulated expanse on the Atlantic coast. [57 minutes] Closed Captioning
