About City

Barcelona, located at the Mediterranean sea in the very north of the Spanish coast, is certainly the most cosmopolitan and economically most active city in this country. It has always proved its will to be modern, to follow the latest international tendencies or be ahead of them. To the tourist this is evident specially in its architecture, which so well reflects the general approach to life in this always pulsating city. Of course, Barcelona has an old history, and there are monuments of Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance periods or still before, but most characteristic is what has been built during the last, 100 years.

Barcelona has been a center of Modernist architecture and is distinguished specially by the works of genial Antoní Gaudí, who together with his great contemporaries gave new and exciting looks to it, but has remained since then at the top of modernity. Located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona is Spain’s second largest city with 1.6 million residents.Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, an autonomous community of Spain that consists of four provinces: Barcelona, Girona, Lleida, and Tarragona.Both Catalan and Spanish are official languages in Barcelona. While Spanish is spoken more frequently, Catalan is understood by 95 percent of Barcelona residents. Barcelona has a Mediterranean climate with mild, humid winters and warm, dry summers. Winter temperatures range from 39 to 63 °F, compared to summertime temperatures between73 to 90 °F. Frosts and snow are rare.

Each year, 8 million tourists visit Barcelona, making it Europe’s third most-visited city after London and Paris.With its key location on the Mediterranean Sea, the Port of Barcelona is Europe’s largest cruise port, with approximately 3.6 million cruisers passing through the port each year. The Barcelona Maritime Museum is located in the historic Barcelona Royal Shipyard, a former military building dating to the 13th century, with a Roman graveyard found underneath that structure. There are two stories about the founding of Barcelona. One version claims the city was founded by Hercules, 400 years before the building of Rome.

Barcelona has 9 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Seven of them were created by Gaudi:
  • Park Güell
  • Palau Güell
  • Casa Milà
  • Casa Vicens
  • La Sagrada Família
  • Casa Batlló
  • Crypt of the Church at Colonia Guell
The two other UNESCO sites were designed by architect Lluis Domenech i Montaner:
  • Palau de la Música Catalana – one of the world’s leading concert halls
  • Hospital de Sant Pau
