Flight Paths: Barcelona

Continuing the journey along the Spanish Coast, Vincent examines Gaudi’s unfinished masterpiece and the catalan city’s most iconic piece of architecture, the Sagrada Familia Cathedral. Vincent finds a replica of a plane that was used to connect Barcelona and Madrid in the 1920s, and aboard which we witness a breathtaking panorama of the city. Vincent is also initiated in the bizarre human-tower building tradition of the Castellers!
