Barcelona Metropolitan Area: a capital point in the world

The Barcelona Metropolitan Area (AMB) plays a leading role in the context of Europe. Its strategic geographic position and population density are supported by a network of transport (railway, road, sea and air) and communications that interconnects it to the other main metropolitan areas on the continent. These sets of cities are grouped according to various spatial models and occupy a specific territory that, in the case of the AMB, is located on the Mediterranean arch. Globally, Barcelona enjoys a leading position as a place for production and research, and as a tourist destination, business centre, cultural and innovative hub, and commercial and leisure harbour.
