Barcelona is an easy place to fall in love with. The brilliant architecture of Antoni Gaudí, amazing weather, tasty food, urban beaches, mountains, alongside its many events, and one of the most active start-up scenes in Europe over the last decade, are just some of the reasons to be seduced.
Despite holding its own traditions, historical and cultural heritage, Barcelona is a melting pot of different cultures. The cultural, cosmopolitan and arty draw of the city attracts more than 12 million visitors from all over the world to see sights like the Sagrada Familia or Guell Park.
International students are amongst those who find Barcelona an attractive option thanks to the vast number of degrees and masters on offer with a solid reputation overseas.
Since it hosted the Barcelona 92 'Olympic Games, the city has seen a huge array of worldwide sporting events. Football is, of course, the most popular sport in Barcelona. Can you imagine what it feels like seeing a match live, in the FC Barcelona Stadium? Not a soccer lover? No problem. Barcelona is a city brimming with the sounds of music: whether you love to attend major international festivals like Primavera Sound or Sonar, watch globally famous superstars performing in concert, or indulge in indie bands in small bars, Barcelona has the option for you.
Barcelona is a place to visit, enjoy, eat, learn, play sport, sunbathe, grow, do business, meet people from around the world… And, above all else, LIVE.
