LEAR JET.jpg

Xavier Nathanial Sinclair owned this type of black Learjet 35 executive jet in THE ROSARIO and it was used by Katie and Max to fly back and forth from Spain to England and Germany, and here it is... superb!

Imagine staking out Sinclair's villa complex from this ruined Catalonian farmhouse.

BARCELONA

In The Rosario, the large coastal city of Barcelona is the base for Tommy Perlmann's Restauración de Muebles Antiguos workshop, off Barcelona’s Carrer de Josep Anselm Clavé Street, near La Rambla.

LA RAMBLA

The first view of La Rambla, below, is from the Christopher Columbus monument. The second shows the wide and open character of the pedestrian street. The street name is derived from an old Arabic word for sand رمل. Originally, it was a dry sandy river bed - an important drain for the seasonal heavy rainwater flowing from the Collserola hills during the spring and autumn.

The bottom picture shows part of Tommy's street.

MADRID

Madrid is the capital city of Spain with a population of over three million people - a bustling and vibrant place for Juan Diego Aquado and Antonio Alonso de Mazarrido of the CNI to live and work.
