The city

Barcelona's sheltered location on the shore of the Mediterranean between the sea and the Collserola mountains gives it a unique beauty, heightened by its incredible wealth of architecture.


Throughout its history, Barcelona has sought to renew itself by hosting major world events and this has helped to shape its personality and lend it international prominence. The foremost events have been the Universal Exposition of 1888, the International Exposition of 1929, the 1992 Summer Olympic Games, and the Universal Forum of Cultures in 2004.

The city has a magnificent transport and communications network which includes one of the foremost ports on the Mediterranean, an airport with a throughput of over 30 million passengers a year, and a high-speed rail connected with different points in Spain and France.

All this, together its vibrant cultural, financial and commercial life, make Barcelona an indispensable tourist destination and one of the best venues for holding conferences and all other types of events.
