Where is Barcelona? Geography of Barcelona

The simple answer to this question is to answer, "in Spain!" with a matching finger pointing to the direction of the country. However, taking the question serious, one would answer that the city, named Barcelona is located on the northeast coast of the Iberian Peninsula, facing the Mediterranean Sea, on a plateau approximately 5 km or approximately 3 miles wide limited by the mountain range of Collserola, the Llobregat river to the south-west and the Besòs river to the north. This plateau has 170 square kilometers of area, of which 101 km² are occupied by the city itself.

Barcelona is 160 km (100 mi) south of the Pyrenees and the Catalonian border with France.

That serious answer however is not very interesting. To go to Barcelona, simply buy a plane ticket to the city reserve a hotel in there and simply enjoy your time looking,roaming, touring, etcetera around this magnificent big city. I was there! I can assure you will have a great time both with night and day tour.

Aside from the big city, this Catalonian capital has much more things to be proud of: buildings/architectures, seas, mountains and many more. So where is Barcelona? The map below will let you know!
