Why Barcelona?
The Barcelona area offers a range of settings for geography fieldwork unrivalled in Europe. The city of Barcelona presents a fascinating case study of many of the major themes of urban growth and development. Field studies in the unspoiled National Parks that surround the city include coastal management, river processes, dune ecosystems, limestone and volcanic landscapes.
