Welcome to Barcelona

Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain and the capital of the Spanish region of Catalonia, in the north eastern corner of the country. The city is located by the Mediterranean Sea and next to the Pyrenees mountains, enjoying the benefits of the sea and the mountain. The city has a population of over 1.5 million in habitants

Barcelona is probably the most famous city of Spain, although it is Madrid which is the capital of the country. It is also a polemic spot since the region of Catalonia is one of the most nationalist and independent of the country. This feature is especially noticeable in their speech, since Catalonia has its own language, and although both Spanish and Catalan are official languages most people will only use Catalan to communicate. Catalan is somehow similar to Spanish and it is not difficult to understand if you have some notions of “Castellano”, as they usually call Spanish.
