The city is a real metropolis, on the same level as Paris, Rome or Amsterdam. It has a large variety of artistic events on offer, bustling activity in the streets, an intense nightlife and an international ambience. What’s more, its geographical location allows easy access not only to the beaches of the Mediterranean coast, but also to the ski slopes of the Pyrenees. On a final note, being situated in Catalonia, Barcelona’s official languages are Spanish and Catalan. Naturally, the language taught in our schools is Spanish, although the inhabitants do speak both languages.
