Viladecans is a city near Barcelona, only a few Km away. It has a population of 75.000 inhabitants. My city is a beautiful city because it is near the beach and there are streets to walk around and it’s full of markets. There’s an area called “ La Rambla”, there are a lot of outdoor bars and restaurants. The weather is warm in the winter and the summer is wonderful but it is very hot. Viladecans is a great city due to sport. There are great athletes of “Athletic Marche” and marathon runners representing Spain of the Olympic Games. There is also big enthusiasm for baseball because in the Barcelona 1992 Olympics Games it was recognised as an official sport. The people of Viladecans are very friendly they belong to a working middle class.
