City information

See you in Barcelona!

Barcelona,  the  capital  of  Catalonia,  is  an  exciting  Spanish  city
with  a  unique  cosmopolitan  flair.  The  metropolis  with  about  1.6  
million inhabitants is located in a privileged setting, directly on the
Mediterranean Sea.

Barcelona  has  a  rich  cultural  heritage,  where  medieval  buildings  
meet  the  modernism  of  20th  century  Avant-Garde  architecture.  
You can experience this inspiring blend by exploring the Barri Gòtic
(Catalan for "Gothic Quarter"), the centre of the old city of Barcelona,
and  then  visiting  the  immense  but  still  unfinished  church  of  the  
Sagrada Família, perhaps Antoni Gaudi’s best-known work of Catalan
modernist architecture.

Barcelona’s varied recreational options cater to all tastes. If you are
looking for a break from hectic city life, you can stroll around one of
the sixty municipal parks, bike or skate along the sea front promenade
or enjoy the sun and surf at one of Barcelona’s numerous beaches.
Art enthusiasts will appreciate the numerous museums in Barcelona,
such as the National Museum of Art of Catalonia, the Fundació Joan
Miró, the Picasso Museum and the Fundació Antoni Tàpies.  
Barcelona is also a great place to enjoy live music and theatre. Catch
a performance at the world-renowned Gran Teatre del Liceu opera
house, the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya or the Palau de la Música
Catalana concert hall.

Don’t forget to enjoy the delicious Mediterranean gastronomy while
you are here! Dishes to try include Arròs a la cassola (similar to the
famous Paella Valenciana), Catalonian stews, such as Escudella i
carn d'olla, and excellent desserts like Crema Catalana or Postre
de  Músic  (musician’s  dessert)  with  hazelnuts,  walnuts,  pinenuts  
and raisins.
The  ESMRMB  2017  will  take  place  at  the  centrally  located  Fira  

Congress Venue
Fira de Barcelona
Montjuïc Venue
Palau de Congressos (Congress Centre)
Avda. Reina Maria Cristina, s/n
