Located on the Mediterranean Sea and offering a vibrant cosmopolitan atmosphere, Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, a unique region in Spain. Known for its cultural and artistic heritage, Catalonia’s contribution to art includes the famous architect Gaudi and painters Salvador Dalí and Juan Miró.
The cultural pace of Barcelona is one of the most striking aspects of the city. Each week there are countless fairs, expositions, exhibitions, performances and artistic events in Barcelona from which to choose. Add to this an amazing diversity of restaurants and cafes and beautiful beaches, and you will not be surprised why Barcelona is a major tourist center in Europe and an increasingly active port of call for cruise ships.
Not only a cultural centre, but also reputably a fashion, business, and innovation and technology capital is what sets Barcelona apart from the rest of Spain. Barcelona is a world-recognized model for blending art, urban planning and industry; the city combines a rich mixture of high-tech industries, medical centers and institutions of higher learning. A major attraction is also the city’s Mediterranean cuisine. These are mere reasons why Barcelona is a perfect place to study abroad in Spain. The history and attitudes of locals make you feel right at home when you are here.
Barcelona is a city full of tree-lined boulevards, open spaces, and architectural diversity. Barcelona has preserved numerous historic places almost intact and combined them with the very modern. Since the 1992 Summer Olympics were hosted in Barcelona, a number of new structures have emerged, with some areas within the city added by extending the land toward the sea.
