Welcome to Manresa

UManresa is located in Manresa, a small city of approximately 75.000 inhabitants strategically situated in the heart of Catalonia. It is an hour away from Barcelona, half way between the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees, overlooked by the mountain of Montserrat. 


Manresa is the capital of the Bages region and as such it promotes industry, trade, services, sport and culture through the entire region. Consequently it boasts impressive cultural facilities and an excellent commercial, gastronomic and leisure offering. In terms of tertiary education, Manresa enjoys a shared Campus (UManresa, UPC and UOC), a university library and a hall of residence to accommodate 100 students.


Manresa has a rich cultural and historic heritage; it is certainly worth taking time to visit its medieval centre, with the magnificent Gothic basilica of Santa Maria de la Seu, the “Pont Vell” Roman bridge, the Baroque churches and the Modernist architecture route.
