Chemical Engineering 2018 Meeting & Hospitality
Sprawled between the beaches of the Mediterranean and the hills of Montjuïc, Barcelona is a city whose personality bursts at every natural seam. The capital of Catalonia, one of Spain’s 17 autonomous communities, with a population of 1.6 million, Barcelona is also known as the country’s most progressive city, always on the cutting-edge of European art, fashion and cuisine. Barcelona is renowned for universities, different types of industries, museums, entertainment venues and is a host to many sporting events. If there ever were a city to be defined as “cosmopolitan,” it would be Barcelona. More international than Spanish, it has been a vital Mediterranean port for centuries. Just spend a sunny afternoon hanging your feet off the docks of Port Vell and you’ll immediately notice the diversity of nationalities, cultures, ethnicities and languages that Barcelona encompasses.
