ALWAYS BARCELONA

Barcelona has a combination of attributes that make it unique and an attractive, diverse city, not only to live in and visit, but also to work, study, invest or set up business. In short, a city that offers everything required during the different stages of life, and the .barcelona domain seeks to become its voice.

The city is made up of 73 districts and over one and a half inhabitants. The districts form the land and the neighbours the driving force behind a city that likes challenges, and that connects with innovation, digital progress, and entrepreneurship, with collaborative and intelligent initiatives and social platforms to tackle them.

An internationally famous brand that, despite not being a capital city, competes with the top 10 cities worldwide, including London, Berlin, Paris, New York, Rome and Amsterdam. We are able to compete with these world capitals by highlighting a clear idea that responds to a way of being and doing, a way of work and of life.

Internationally, another voice behind the city’s reputation and that supports the .barcelona domain involves the project Always Barcelona, a cordial initiative that integrates citizens, businesses, organisations and institutions as the voices of a global, open and innovative Barcelona.
