With a population of 1.6 million, Barcelona is the second-largest city in Spain, as well as an international financial, artistic and cultural hub. The city is located along the northeastern coast of the Iberian Peninsula, facing the Mediterranean Sea. Just 120km from the Pyrenees and French border, it is capital of the autonomous region of Catalonia . The official languages are Catalan and Spanish. The city has a rich history, dating back to the Roman Empire.

Subsequently occupied by Roman, Visgoth, and Arab populations, the city bears the architectural marks of many societies. Though the emergence of Madrid as the centre of power led to Barcelona’s decline in the 15th century, the city prospered after the Napoleonic wars, industrializing heavily during the 19th century. Barcelona has since reemerged as a major world city, hosting the 1992 Summer Olympics. As the capital of Catalonia, it maintains a unique cultural and political status.
