About Barcelona

Barcelona (pop. 1.5 million) is the heart and capital of the region of Cataluña in the northeast corner of Spain. The origin of this Mediterranean city goes back more than 2,500 years and is crucial to the history of Spain and Catalonia - ruled by Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths, Moors, and Franks until it finally became part of the Spanish empire in the 17th century.

Led recently by the renaissance that began with the 1992 Olympics, Barcelona is in the midst of dynamic change, with entire districts undergoing renovation. Originally developed as a series of largely self-contained neighborhoods–each with its distinct identity and function–Barcelona is surprisingly easy to navigate. From its medieval Gothic quarter and historic old town to its world-famous art nouveau buildings and futuristic architecture near the harbor, Barcelona is a city of contrasts and unrivaled artistic beauty and diversity.
