Sixty million visitors come to Spain each year but head for the tourist resorts in the south. Shilpa Mehta's journey takes her through the less travelled north of the country. Starting in Barcelona, Shilpa explores the city's rich architecture and discovers Flamenco dancing in the street. Just outside Barcelona is the small town of Terrassa, where Shilpa watches a Catalan traditional event of building human castles. From Terrassa Shilpa heads for Pamplona in the heart of the Basque country, where the annual Bull Run known as åÎ̍åÎÌøÌ__Ì_åÇEl Encierro: is taking place. Running alongside the bulls whilst they are herded through the streets is seen as a test of machismo, but participants risk serious injury and even death. In the north west of the country Shilpa joins the Pilgrim Trail, staying in refugios along this famous religious route. The trail ends in Santiago, and Shilpa arrives in this picturesque city just in time to celebrate the anniversary of the death of Spain's patron saint, St James. After attending a service in Santiago cathedral, Shilpa watches a spectacular fire work display, symbolising the turning of the Moslems out of Spain and victory for the Catholic faith. In contrast to the lively festival in Santiago, Shilpa ends her journey further west on the Atlantic coast. This is a vast expanse of virtually unpopulated country, stretching to the edge of Europe. This destination is known as Cabo Finisterre, which means the end of the world. A fitting place to end an incredible journey through one of Europe's most enticing countries.
