development of students.
In keeping with its ideals, which are based on Christian

The City of Barcelona
UIC is located in Barcelona, city
that has successfully blended the old and the new in a way that
makes this city simply breathtakingly beautiful. There is
nothing more enjoyable than strolling around the streets of
Barcelona and taking in the atmosphere that radiates out from
the architecture. Bold, brash, colorful, distinctive,
harmonious, varied and unique are just a few adjectives that
come to mind when describing Barcelona architecture. Traditional
Catalan Gothic architecture such as the “Església del Pi” church
is reserved and stoic in its design, but just a 5 minutes’ walk
away we have the Barcelona Cathedral with is beautiful arches
and facade. A short metro ride we have the famous “Sagrada
Familia” Basilica which towers into the sky and has different
architectural styles on all four sides of the building.
Our city will make a great location
for an interesting and productive conference, and we look
forward to welcoming you!
