InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Barcelona

Hello to all Americans in Barcelona! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Barcelona? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Barcelona which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Barcelona is one of the world’s leading tourist, economic, and cultural centers. The Catalonian capital is a culturally rich city known for the food, nightlife, architecture, and much more! With the metro, tram, train, or bus services, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Castelldefels or Gavà, for example, which are both approximately a 20-minute train ride away from Barcelona’s center.

Although Barcelona has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Barcelona, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
