Barcelona is spread over several geological units: Paleozoic and Tertiary materials outcrops with Pleistocene and Holocene deposits placed over them. Each one of these units is characterised by significantly different geotechnical parameters. An accurate geotechnical study has been carried out with the estimation of the dynamic properties of the subsoil in the zone. Two different techniques have been applied to evaluate the potential seismic site effects. The results of a simulated transfer functions using a unidimensional linear-equivalent method have been compared with the predominant frequency of the Nak
