Barcelona is a city on the coast of northeastern Spain. It is the capital of the autonomous community of Catalonia.

Barcelona was founded about 15BC by Romans as a military camp. It suffered many invasions (Visigoths, Arabs, Franks), forged alliance with Aragon, and in 15th century became a province of Spain.
