Barcelona, Spain - July 15th, 2009

Barcelona, Spain’s second largest city, lies on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Barcelona lies on a plateau by the coast, and is bounded to the west by the Serra de Collserola ridge.  More and more ridges become visible in this orthorectified image as one moves north towards the Pyrenees.

The populated areas of Barcelona and its metropolitican area appear white or light grey, while the dark grey, flat area along the coast just south of the city is mostly an industrial zone.  The Llobregat River flows through this area, and Barcelona’s main airport is located there as well.
