Since the beginning of civilization, humanity has been driven to tinker, sculpt, design and create. Join us on a journey across Europe as we discover the cities keeping old legacies alive, bringing the world the greatest of tradition, skill and craftsmanship. From an ancient city in Spain that has been crafting swords for thousands of years, to a small town in the French Riviera growing the world’s best roses, these are the capitals of culture.

Tune in next Monday, January 7, for the first episode of “The City Of…” a new series by Great Big Story.
