A GLIMPSE TO THE NORTHEASTERN COAST OF THE IBERIAN PENINSULA
Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain in both size and population, in a privileged position on the northeastern coast of the Iberian Peninsula. It is also the capital of Catalonia, 1 of the 17 Autonomous Communities that make up Spain.
The capital of Catalonia is unequivocally a Mediterranean city, not only because of its geographic location but also and above all because of its history, tradition and cultural influences. The documented history of the city dates back to the founding of a Roman colony on its soil in the second century B.C. Modern Barcelona experienced spectacular growth and economic revival at the onset of industrialization during the second half of the 19th century.
