BarcelonaBarcelona is one of the world's leading tourist, economic, trade fair/exhibitions and cultural-sports centres, and its influence in commerce, education, entertainment, media,
fashion, science, and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world's major global cities.
Barcelona is Spain's 2nd largest city, with a population of 1.6 million.
Barcelona is a transport hub with one of Europe's principal seaports, an international airport which handles above 35 million passengers per year, an extensive motorway network and a high-speed rail line with a link to France and the rest of Europe.
The Barri Gòtic (Catalan for "Gothic Quarter") is the centre of the old city of Barcelona. Many of the buildings date from medieval times, some from as far back as the Roman settlement of Barcelona.
Especially remarkable is the work of architect Antoni Gaudí, which can be seen throughout the city.
His best-known work is the immense but still unfinished church of the Sagrada Família, which has been under construction since 1882, and is still financed by private donations.
As of 2007, completion is planned for 2026.
FC Barcelona's Camp Nou, the largest stadium in Europe with a capacity of 100,000.
