A guide to office space in Barcelona

Spain’s second most populated city behind the capital Madrid, Barcelona is one of Europe's major hubs in terms of the economy, tourism and culture.

It is a leading smart city and an important European transport centre serviced by both the Port of Barcelona and Barcelona-El Prat Airport.

The location

The capital of the Catalonia region, Barcelona is found on the northeast coast of the Iberian Peninsula looking out over the Mediterranean Sea. 

With mild winters and warm, dry summers Barcelona benefits from an ideal climate. 

The city is divided into 10 administrative districts; Ciutat Vella, Eixample, Sants-Montjuïc, Les Corts, Sarrià-Sant Gervasi, Gràcia, Horta-Guinardó, Nou Barris, Sant Andreu, and Sant Martí.

Five things you probably didn’t know about Barcelona:
  • Barcelona’s beaches make it one of the best beach cities in the world but prior to 1992 there were no public-access beaches as the coastline was populated by local industries
  • Barcelona was the first and only city to receive the Royal Gold Medal for architecture in 1999, an honour that has been awarded to individuals by the Royal Institute of British Architects since 1848
  • La Rambla, the most famous tourist avenue in the city is actually five streets combined: Canaletes, Estudis, Sant Josep, Caputxins and Santa Mònica
  • ‘Catanyol’ a mix of Catalan and Spanish is widely used in Barcelona
  • Some people believe Hercules was the founder of the city, approximately 400 years before Rome was built, while others believe Carthaginian Hamilcar Barca, father of Hannibal, founded the city, who named the city Barcino after his family in the Third century BC
