Though an important part of Spain, Barcelona is proud of its independent Catalan identity and language. It is a port city with a long history dating from antiquity, and, during the 20th century, it was an intellectual and artistic hub that saw an efflorescence of modern art, political consciousness and revolutionary politics. Both the unique aspects of Barcelona and its ties to the rest of the country will be explored during the study abroad program. The city is known for its architecture, dating from Roman times, to the Gothic cathedral to Antonin Gaudi's Art Nouveau buildings.
