Barcelona

Sprawled between the beaches of the Mediterranean and the mountains of Montjuïc, Barcelona, Spain’s second largest city and capital of the Autonomous Community of Catalonia, boasts unparalleled architectural beauty, sandy beaches and mountains all around. Visitors encounter its pristine and almost entirely intact historic Gothic centre between the maze of narrow cobblestone streets and the grid-like layout of the L’Eixample neighbourhood, the urban planning “Enlargement” project that began towards the end of the 19th century.

Bacelona’s magnificent beaches, cultural and social life, arts scene and convivial atmosphere draw over 5,000 international students and millions of visitors each year to its shores. There really is something for every one in this vibrant coastal city.

Enforex Barcelona is located only a 5 minute walk from La Rambla, one of the most emblematic boulevards of Spain. In the heart of Barcelona, the school is located in a magnificent, 100-year-old building that has been fully renovated and restored to meet the needs of a modern institution.
