Its location means Barcelona is the gateway to southern Europe, the capital of the Mediterranean area, a bridge to the Maghreb and a platform to Latin America.

Barcelona has over 2,000 years of history and is the main city in the Mediterranean. It is also the economic, cultural and administrative capital of Catalonia and one of the economic drivers of Spain and the European Union.

 

Its location means Barcelona is the gateway to southern Europe, the capital of the Mediterranean area, a bridge to the Maghreb and a platform to Latin America.

 

Its direct market has more than 25 million inhabitants, those that make up the Euroregion that stretches from the Balearics to Aragon, and from Valencia to the south-east of France.

 

Being on the shores of the Mediterranean in the north-east of Spain, two hours from France by road and well connected with the main European cities, means it is one of the preferred destinations for international investment in southern Europe.

 

And its leadership of the Mediterranean, as a bridge to the southern shore and a platform for the entry of goods, merchandise and people from the Middle East and America, is becoming increasingly clear.
