Barcelona is the capital of Cataluña and the second most populated municipality in Spain, with all its space a total of 6.3 million people.

Spanish is the most spoken language in Barcelona (according to the linguistic census conducted by the Government of Catalonia in 2013) and is almost universally understood.
After Spanish, the Catalan language is the second most spoken in the city and is understood by 95% of the population, while 72.3% can speak, 79% can read it and 53% can write it, thanks to the educational system of linguistic immersion.

With mild winters and hot and dry summers It is the largest metropolis next to the Mediterranean and is located between the mouths of the rivers Llbregat and Besòs being limited by the Sierra de Collserola that goes up to 512 meters of altitude

The first indications of settlement in Barcelona date back to the end of the Neolithic period (2 000 to 1 500 a. C.) in which Barcino (Barcelona) was the city of the Laietanos (an Iberian town) and that gave origin to the city .

Barcelona will have been founded by the Romans at the end of the 1st century BC. C. on the same previous Iberian settlement where they had previously settled since 218 a. C.

Centuries later the marriage between King Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castile, generated a tense atmosphere between Catalans and Castilians that reached the most critical moment with the War of the Reapers (1640 to 1652). The city began an era of decline that lasted for the following centuries and ended with the abolition of the institutional laws of Catalonia.

Upon entering the twentieth century it became one of the most advanced urban centers in Spain. Having been the headquarters of two universal exhibitions: one in 1888 and another in 1929, but 10 years later the Francoist troops occupied the city in the last phase of the war making the unfavorable scenario again for the capital of Catalonia.

Restored democracy after the death of dictator Franco, a new cultural and urban development occurred, coming a growing civil population, giving the city an infrastructure worthy of a modern metropolis, cosmopolitan and attractive for tourism.

In the summer of 1992, the Olympic Games and the Universal Forum of Cultures were held in 2004.

Antoni Gaudí (1852)

Antoni Gaudí (1852)

Antoni Gaudí was a famous Catalan architect who figures as a tip of Catalan Modernism. The works of Gaudí reveal a unique and individual style and are mostly in the city of Barcelona. Originally from a family not very well off, Gaudí tends to look for luxury during his youth, however in adulthood and at the end of his life this tendency disappeared completely. When he was a young man he joined the Nationalist Movement of Catalonia and assumed some positions critical of the Catholic Church, at the end of his life that facet disappeared. Gudí never married. Gaudí was a fervent Catalan nationalist, he started his professional career still in college and worked mainly in Barcelona, ​​where he had studied. Gaudí let himself be influenced by innumerable tendencies, never having dedicated to his architecture the copy of a certain style. A first phase that can be identified in the architecture of Gaudí can be called “Moorish” another identifiable phase in Gaudí’s work is what can be classified from the “Gothic” period taste for the Baroque In conjunction with inspiration in nature, These characteristics give his works a personal and unique stamp in the history of architecture. [8] The work of Gaudí par excellence was, however, the expiatory temple of the Holy Family, a work to which he dedicated an important part of his life and in which he worked attentively in his last 12 years of existence.

Salvador Dalí (1904)

Salvador Dalí (1904)

Salvador Dalí was an important Catalan painter, known for his surrealist work. Dalí’s work is striking because of the incredible combination of bizarre, oneiric images with excellent plastic quality. He attended the Federal School of Design, where he began his formal artistic education in 1916, discovering Impressionist painting. His first public exhibition took place at the Municipal Theater in Figueres in 1919. In October 1921, Dalí went to live in Madrid, where he studied at the Academy of Arts of San Fernando but was expelled from it in 1926 when he declared that no one at the Academy was competent enough to evaluate him. After these events he experimented with the “Dadaism” that probably influenced all his work. After this phase he made his first trip to Paris, where he met with Pablo Picasso. Here Dali did a series of works strongly influenced by Picasso and Miró, while developing his own style. Dalí was influenced by the masters of classicism. His best-known work “The Persistence of Memory” was completed in 1931. Salvador Dalí also had artistic works in film, sculpture and photography. Collaborated with: – Walt Disney in the short animation “Destino”, which was released later in 2003 – Next to Alfred Hitchcock, in the movie Spellbound. Politics played a significant role in his emergence as an artist. He was sometimes portrayed as a supporter of the authoritarian Francisco Franco. André Breton, leader of the surrealist movement, made a great effort to disassociate Dalí and his surrealism name. The reality is probably a little more complex. His return to Catalonia was after the Second World War and there Dali became closer to the regime of Francisco Franco. In any case, he was not an anti-Semite, he was even a friend of the famous architect and designer Paulo László, who was Jewish and also pronounced great admiration for Freud and Einstein, both Jews. When the wife “Gala” died in Port Lligat, she was deeply depressed and disoriented ever since, losing all her will to live. He ended up dying on 23 January 1989 of heart failure at the age of 84 and was buried in the crypt of his Dalí Theater-Museum.

In the 80´s, Carreras occasionally left the operatic repertoire, making countless studio recordings, with recital songs of zarzuelas, musicals and operettas. and the Misa Criolla Argentina Mass, conducted by the composer Ariel Ramírez himself, brought him worldwide prestige.
