Episode 14: Barcelona, Spain - its name conjures images of Old World traditions and its people are energized by their passion for enjoying life. Samantha Brown packs her bags for this Spanish coastal city, where art, architecture, and cava wine are staples of Catalan lifestyle. Nightlife is big in Barcelona, so Samantha's first stop is one of the city's most endearing establishments - El Xampanyet Bar. Here Samantha joins locals in taste-testing the house special - a glass of sparkling wine - and gets a lesson in the art of eating anchovies! Samantha discovers the out-of-the-ordinary architecture of Antoni Gaudi, whose celebrated creations would be right at home in an imaginative amusement park.
