Barcelona, there are traces of occupation since 4000bc, was a small Roman city called Barcino which, over the centuries developed into an important medieval city. The splendour of that period ended at the start of the modern era with the War of the Spanish Succession. Even so, the city progressed with the times, industrialising and becoming the economic driving force of today’s Catalonia.
Capital of Catalonia, with more than a million and a half inhabitants, Barcelona is located northeast of the Iberian Peninsula. Open to the sea, Barcelona is one of the most dynamic and interesting cities in the Mediterranean.
Today it is one of the most valued and exciting cities in Europe, open to trade and commerce, as well as other people and cultures.
Their rich culture, their varied gastronomy, cosmopolitan and extraordinary quality lifestyle make Barcelona the best.
