Spain is a vibrant and complex country that is home to many types of landscapes, including scenic mountains, Mediterranean beaches, rural towns and bustling, cosmopolitan cities. Its big cities, including Madrid and Barcelona, are a mix of modern and ancient.
Barcelona boasts an amazing medieval quarter, yet it has been ranked one of Europe’s best cities for business. The city’s thriving food, music and entertainment scene, along with its artistic atmosphere, make it one of the most popular places to study abroad. In addition to Spanish, you will experience the distinct Catalan language, which shares similarities with other Romance languages like Spanish, French and Italian.
