Located in the heart of the province of Barcelona, Terrassa is currently the third most populated city in Catalonia; it is an outstanding university and industrial center in southern Europe, with a rich cultural and artistic heritage.

Terrassa has a very distinctive personality, influenced by its industrial past, which has left a very particular mark on the municipality's legacy. The monuments, history and patrimony make Terrassa an attractive point of interest for people with cultural interests.

Terrassa is a living city, with a very dynamic cultural and leisure offer and also with a great sport activity and large green areas and citizen relations. The Jazz Festival, the Modernist Fair, hockey game, dance, music and theater seasons, castelleras exhibitions or golf, complete a wide range of offers to enjoy the dynamic city and its services.

In recent years, Terrassa has firmly embarked on the path of innovation, placing itself at the forefront of European "smart cities", with a smart city model that is based on the re-edition of the Smart City Master Plan 2015-2020 for the period 2021-2025. That is present in several areas of the city: Mobility, Environment, Quality of Life, Governance and Economy. On the horizon of this plan lies the sustainable urban and citizen development of Terrassa.
