The Catalan capital has been chosen as one of the 28 finalists to become one
of the "7 Wonder Cities" of the world, an initiative created by the Swiss foundation New 7 Wonders.
This distinction aims to recognise the cities that best represent the milestones and
aspirations of global urban civilisation, as well as fomenting debate on how these
population nuclei should respond to present and future challenges.
The list of the "7 Wonder Cities" will be revealed on 7 December 2014,
after three knock-out stages, though you can already vote for your favourite cities
on the foundation's website and make Barcelona a Wonder City!
