Catalonia's 'Indians' - contested legacy of colonial past
Catalonia's 'Indians' were merchants who sailed to the Americas to make their fortunes before returning to their homeland to enjoy their riches. Gerard Escaich Folch travels to Begur where Anna Castellví from the Xarxa de Municipis Indians explains the architectural, social and cultural influence the returning emigrants had. The links between 'Indians' and the slave trade are explored by Martín Rodrigo, professor of contemporary history at Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona. Singer Neus Mar sings a havanera by the sea in Calella de Palafrugell. This week's Catalan phrase is a song lyric: 'El meu avi', which means 'My Granddad'.
