'Barcelona

1.  Description

Barcelona is a Mediterranean sea city, providing important trade links to Algiers, Montpellier, Rome, and Lisbon. Barcelona is a popular vacation spot, with many lovely beaches. The Pyrenees Mountains supply the city with much of its resources, and there are numerous small trade routes stretching the hundred miles between Barcelona and the mountain range, though they are often dangerous and difficult, making sea the preferred method of travel for most natives of Barcelona.

The city itself has deteriorated with the passage of time, most buildings collapsing and falling to ruin. Most of the modern buildings in the area have not withstood the test of time, and those that remain are avoided, feared to be on the verge of collapsing. One of the few remaining human icons is the Montjuïc park and fortress. The park itself is a rolling, expansive hill covered in forest. A human fortress erected at the top of it, erected during ancient human times.

2.  Culture

Luperci have been able to maintain and restore a few buildings in the city, mostly close to the coast. Most of population, however, lives in the surrounding areas of the city, living in sprawling territories and packs despite their human adaptiveness. Permanent residents are few and far between -- many youths of this city grow up with sailor's dreams, wanting nothing more than to spend their life adrift in the Mediterranean. Commonly, young canines travel to Lisbon to more formerly "study" sailing and become adept at it, and then come back to their home city to try to barter their way onto a ship as part of a crew, dreaming of someday captaining their own ship.

2.1  Species

Iberian wolves make up the vast majority of the population here, though common gray wolves can also be found throughout the region. The city of Barcelona is something of a cultural mecca -- it is an important port to the western end of the Mediterranean, enjoying large amounts of traffic from Rome and Algiers. There is usually a large transient population of sailing canines, of course, as Barcelona provides an important stop for anyone wishing to head to Lisbon.
