BES La Salle (Universitat Ramon Llull) 

Barcelona is one of Europe’s most cosmopolitan cities; it is a vibrant metropolis with roots that go back to Roman empire days. Students are invited to come and stroll the grand boulevards, the historic Bari Gothic alleys, the Mediterranean seaside promenade, and the teeming market places where high fashion, antiques, and funky souvenirs share equal space. Tempt your palates at the many tapas bars and revel in the excitement of the vibrant flamenco dance in the evenings. See the world famous art and architecture of Picasso, Dali, Gaudi, Miro, and others.
