Barcelona is a major city in Spain, situated in the northeast of the country on the Mediterranean coast. It is the largest city in Catalonia and the site of the Catalan parliament. It was the site of the 1992 Olympic Games.

The central part of the city is reasonably flat, but the city extends onto the surrounding hills.

The architect Antoni Gaudi lived and worked in Barcelona, leaving many famous buildings. One of those is the yet unfinished cathedral called Sagrada familia.

It has an airport to the southwest of the city named "El Prat de Llobregat".

Barcelona is known for its lively nightclubs and tapas bars. It also has a large aquarium near the sea. Another nearby tourist attraction is the mountain of Mont Serrat.
