Welcome to Barcelona

We are very pleased to host the sixth edition of RustFest in Barcelona, Spain.

Barcelona, the second biggest city in Spain, is located at a strategic geographical point on the Mediterranean coast of the Iberian peninsula, protected by the Serra de Collserola mountain range, delimited by two river deltas and with privileged natural surrounding. Barcelona is an open, vibrant and creative city with a busy cultural, political, business and commercial life. It is a metropolis where every imaginable language can be heard, as well as a city that invites its residents and visitors alike to discover its culture and traditions. Strolling around the streets of Barcelona will bring surprises at every turn. Pedestrian streets in the old quarter, green spaces, and a splendid seafront with a range of modern facilities are a reflection of its multi-faceted character.
