Gerard Escaich Folch explores the artistry on display around the city and hears what visitors make of it. Angus Clelland gets a picture of the floral sector in Catalonia from Joan Guillén, president of the Catalan Florists' Association. Presented by Lorcan Doherty.

This week's Catalan phrase is 'no tot són flors i violes'. Literally, 'not everything is flowers and violas', it means not everything is as nice as it seems.
