Barcelona is the capital of Anzoátegui State and was founded in 1671. Together with Puerto La Cruz and Guanta, Barcelona forms one of the most important urban areas of Venezuela with a population of 950,000. Unlike Puerto La Cruz, built in the 20th century, Barcelona has a mish-mash of historical and modern architecture from its several years of growth and development; the settlement of Nueva Barcelona del Cerro Santo, was established by the Spanish conquistador Joan Orpí. It was re-founded and populated by governor Sancho Fernández de Angulo two kilometres from the original settlement, by a small community of Catalan colonists around 1671. Barcelona was one of the provinces under the governmental authority of the New Andalusia Province, referred to as New Barcelona. One of the remaining buildings of this period is the Museo de Anzoátegui, considered the oldest building in the city. Many of the historical areas of Barcelona centre its main plazas: Bolivar and Boyacá; the Plaza Boyacá was the main settlement in Barcelona, is fronted by the Iglesia El Carmen and the city's cathedral, the Catedral de San Cristobal, built between 1748 and 1773.
Today, the cathedral houses the embalmed remains of San Celestino in a glass reliquary in a chapel off the main nave, which dates back to 1744. By 1761, the territory had been delineated by the population of Pozuelos, west to the headlands of the River Unare, east to the Guanipa plateau and south to the Orinoco River. After forced abdications of the King by Napoleon Bonaparte, the Spanish territories in the Americas began to agitate for autonomy. In Venezuela a series of Junta governments took authority in the name of the deposed King Ferdinand after 19 April 1810, that led to the formation of local juntas. A meeting was convened in the city of Barcelona to proclaim the independence of the province of Barcelona, on the 27 April. On 11 July 1810, the Supreme Junta of Caracas included Barcelona Province as one of the provinces that did not recognize the authority of the Spanish government; this led to a civil conflict between those who wanted independence from the Spanish crown and many who still recognized the authority of Spain.
The return of Francisco de Miranda to Venezuela led to the Declaration of Independence on 5 July 1811, followed by a Civil War between those provinces who remained loyal to Spain, the Cadiz Cortes, those that sought complete independence. In 1811, during the Venezuelan Independence War, La Casa Fuerte, a building near the centre of town, located on the Avenida 5 de Julio set the scene for the period. Built on the ruins of the old Convento de San Francisco, to house the administrative government of the area, but turned into a fortification by Republican defenders to protect the city from the attacks of the Spanish authorities. On 17 April 1817, the house was taken and destroyed by royalist forces, who killed all 1600 people barricaded inside. After the fall of the First Republic, the royalist authorities continued to maintain the limits and structures of the province of Barcelona, but in 1821, it was integrated into the province of Guyana, along with Cumana and Margarita, it began to function as part of the Department of the Orinoco.
Barcelona's autonomy was re-established in 1830, became a center during a second round of Independence battles, where important men like General José Antonio Páez headquartered, or after Independence when Antonio Guzmán Blanco spent time. Barcelona is located in the state of Anzoátegui along the northern coast of Venezuela, near the foothills of the western cordillera region, its northern ocean boundary is peppered with many beaches, including Isla de Plata, Arapito, Cangrejo and Playa Mansa, which cater to the tourist industry or local populations. Barcelona is the gateway to the Mochima National Park, an area of islands and islets that extends across the northern coast, was designated a protected national monument, its hydrography is dominated by the River Neverí, which crosses the centre of town, has been known for seasons of floodings caused excess volume. In 1972, the governor Francisco Arreaza Arreaza granted authority for the construction of cities canals to reduce these seasonal fluctuations.
The River Aragua, which circle the settlement has been prone to flooding, most in 1999 in the area known as El Viñedo. Owing to its location in the dry belt of the southern Caribbean Sea, Barcelona has a hot semi-arid climate with a wet season from June to September and a dry season from December to April. A strong rain shadow and jets parallel to the coast from the westerly monsoon winds during summer serves to restrict rainfall. Over time Barcelona reached the status of town and municipal seat within this territory, growing into a historical centre of industry and commerce, causing sprawl that has started to meld the other metro-poles in the region: principally the tourist-oriented community of Puerto La Cruz. Between Barcelona and Puerto La Cruz there is Lecheria, Urbaneja Municipality, where the El Morro tourism complex is located. An immense network of canals built to house thousands of local and international tourists in houses, condominiums and hotels; the complex is home to many marinas and boatyards and is a popular cruising destination for yachtsmen and sport fishing.
The canals criss-cross the complex, affording every dwelling access to the sea. One of the most ambitious develo
