City Ville Guide


Barcelona is the second biggest town and capital of Catalonia.
It is situated on the north east coast of the Iberian peninsula and is the main Spanish port on the Mediterranean. It is a major financial and industrial metropole.
There are about 1.7 million inhabitants (of which 12,129 registered French citizens).
It enjoys a temperate Mediterranean climate all the year round.
Barcelona was founded 2000 years ago by the Carthaginians and has kept a rich historic heritage and deep-running cultural traditions.
It is the historical capital of Spain and has the reputation of being one of the most cosmopolitan, modern and avant-garde towns in Europe.
After the Olympic Games were held there in 1992 it became one of the most modern towns in Europe and attracts a lot of tourism, for both business and pleasure.
Getting around in town : go on foot - it is rare that you will have to do more a than a 20 minute walk and it's definitely the best way to discover all the little roads and monuments that you would otherwise miss.
The underground : a practical way to travel, it stops at nearly all the main monuments and districts that should be visited. It is functional, clean, regular and not expensive : buy a 10 ticket forfait.
There are plenty of taxis, but they are rather expensive.
We advise you not to use your car, the centre of town is extremely difficult to get around or to park in.
