Barcelona is capital city of Catalonia, is located on the Mediterranean coast in northeastern Spain and has the population 1.600.000 people. Key to Barcelona's success as an important port in the fifteenth century was its geographic position
within the crown of Aragón. The lack of navigable rivers in Catalonia limited interior trade to overland routes that converged at Barcelona's port. Barcelona served as a major node along the coastal trade route from southern France to Valencia
and beyond, and together with the ports of Mallorca and Valencia, controlled the western end of the Mediterranean. The city originated as a Roman fort constructed on a knoll, which has remained the religious and political center of the city.
In the late Middle Ages, the city outgrew this fortification and expanded down to the sea. New perimeter fortifications were constructed, the seaside wall not being completed until 1536. The city's interior was renowned for its numerous religious
and civic monuments. The origin of the earliest settlement at the site of Barcelona is unclear. Around the actual neighborhood of Raval have been found remains of an early settlement, including different tombs and a hut from 5.500 BC.
The legend attributes the foundation of the city directly to the historical Carthaginian Hamilcar Barca, father of Hannibal, who named the city Barcino after his family in the Third century BC. In 15 BC, the Romans redrew the town as
a Roman military camp centerd on the "Mons Taber", a little hill near the contemporary city hall. Under the Romans, it was a colony with the surname of Colonia Faventia Julia Augusta Pia Barcino.
The Barri Gotic (Catalan for "Gothic Quarter") is the center of the old city of Barcelona. Many of the buildings date from medieval times, some from as far back as the Roman settlement of Barcelona.
