Barcelona is the capital and the most populous city of the Autonomous Community of Catalonia, as well as the second largest city in Spain after Madrid.

Today, Barcelona is recognized as a global city due to its importance in finance, commerce, media, entertainment, arts, international trade, education, and tourism.
