'''Barcelona''' is [[Spain]]'s second largest city, with a population of nearly one and half million people (nearly five million in metropolitan area), and the capital and largest city of [[Catalonia]]. The city, located directly on the northeastern Mediterranean coast of Spain, has a rich history dating back at least 2,000 years when it gained prominence as a Roman town under its old name, Barcino.
