The CAPA center is hosted at Institute for American Universities (IAU), located in the downtown Placa de Catalunya area and close to Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter.

I love CAPA Barcelona and everything they’ve done for me. From my professors to where I’m living, it’s been a great experience. Everyone within the CAPA organization has been very helpful, and they want the best for all their students. I would do it all over again!
