Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, an autonomous community of Spain. It is the second biggest Spanish city and one of the most wanted city on the European level. Barcelona is divided into different emblematic neighborhoods each with a distinctive personality and atmosphere: Ciutat Vella, Eixample, Raval, Sants-Montjuïc, Horta-Guinardó, Les Corts, Gràcia, Sarrià – St. Gervasi, among others.
One of the strong assets of Barcelona is its Mediterranean climate, with mild temperatures throughout the year range between 10º (January and February) and 30 ° (July and August). Not being a particularly rainy city, you can enjoy the sun most days of the year, winter or summer. This makes it easy to visit the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea, or parks and hills surrounding the town.
The official languages in Barcelona are Catalan and Spaniah. Although Catalan has an important level of culture and tradition weight, Barcelona is a bilingual city where everyone understands and can be expressed in any of the two languages. If you are a foreigner and you intend to stay for a short time, communicating in Spanish will never be a problem. Still, if you intend to stay for a longer time, learning Catalan can enrich your experience of the city.
