START HERE a mosaic of green, blue, and red emerges from the clouds when your plane descends to El Prat Airport. BCN - a city of flat terracotta roofs, encircled with the olive-green forests of the Collserola rolling down to the Mediterranean. From first touching down in the glass faceted airport to a wander through the textured gothic alleyways or a glance at the modernista architecture, you know you have landed in a city of art. Miró, Gaudí, Dalí and Picasso all spent time here, and as you meet the locals you discover that Barcelona is filled with architects, designers, graphic artists and illustrators. I hope to take you on a creative ride through the city. Barcelona awaits!
