About Barcelona

Located in a privileged position on the north-eastern coast of the Iberian Peninsula and the shores of the Mediterranean, Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain in both size and population. It is also the capital of Catalonia, 1 of the 17 Autonomous Communities that make up Spain.

The capital of Catalonia is unequivocally a Mediterranean city, not only because of its geographic location but also, and above all, because of its history, tradition and cultural influences. The documented history of the city dates back to the founding of a Roman colony on its soil in the second century B.C.

Modern Barcelona experienced spectacular growth and economic revival at the onset of industrialization during the second half of the 19th century. The 1888 World’s Fair became a symbol of the city’s capacity for hard work and its international outlook. Culture and the arts flourish in Barcelona and throughout Catalonia; the splendour achieved by Catalonian’s home-grown art nouveau, modernisme, is one of the clearest examples.

Barcelona, more than just a single city, is really a collection of multi-faceted and diverse cities offering the best of European culture throughout the ages in one place. Neatly matching the ancient with the ultra modern, Barcelona truly stands out as the jewel of the Mediterranean.
