Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona was founded as a Roman city and became the capital of the County of Barcelona in the Middle Ages. Barcelona, which continued to be the capital of the Principality of Catalonia, became the most important city in the Crown of Aragon and the main economic and administrative centre of the Crown, only to be surpassed by Valencia, wrested from Arab domination by the Catalans, shortly before the dynastic union between the Crown of Castile and the Crown of Aragon in 1492. Barcelona has a rich cultural heritage and is now a significant cultural centre as well as a popular tourist destination. The architectural works of Antoni Gaud and Llus Gris are particularly well-known.

Two of Spain's most prestigious universities are located in the city: the University of Barcelona and Pompeu Fabra University. The Union for the Mediterranean's headquarters are in Barcelona. The city is well-known for hosting the Summer Olympics in 1992, as well as world-class conferences and expositions, as well as numerous international sporting events.

Barcelona is a major cultural, economic, and financial centre in southwestern Europe, as well as Spain's primary biotechnology hub.  Barcelona's influence in global socioeconomic affairs qualifies it for global city status (Beta +) as a leading world city.
