In a privileged location on the northeastern coast of the Iberian Peninsula and the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain in both size and population. Barcelona is unequivocally a Mediterranean city, not only because of its geographic location, but also and above all because of its history, traditions, and cultural influences. Barcelona has also long inspired artists and architects, including Gaudi, Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso and Joan Miro, whose works and influence can be felt and viewed in the city´s many museums and buildings. The deep blue Mediterranean background invites for a jog, bike ride or a long, leisurely stroll along the sun-drenched beaches.
