A large city on the Mediterranean

If you want to enjoy the quality of life of a Mediterranean village without giving up the advantages of a large city, Barcelona is for you thanks to its key location about 120 km south of the Pyrenees and France.
The area’s varied cuisine is influenced by its geographical location: vegetable fields, the sea and mountains. The most typical dishes are bread with tomato, fuet cured sausage, xató salad or coca de recapte bread . And we mustn’t forget the star dessert: crema catalana.

Gothic, romantic and avant-garde culture

All this creates an alternative, romantic and unique atmosphere in the city.
