How to Download ESA Sentinel 2 Satellite Images

Sentinel-2 carries an innovative wide swath high-resolution multispectral imager with 13 spectral bands for a new perspective of our land and vegetation. The mission is based on a constellation of two identical satellites in the same orbit, 180° apart for optimal coverage and data delivery. Together they cover all Earth’s land surfaces, large islands, inland and coastal waters every five days at the equator (source ESA).

This tutorial show the procedure to download images of ESA Sentinel 2 from the website:

This post is a part of a group of videos called "Working with Sentinel 2 Imagery on QGIS" that shows the complete procedure to download, represent and process Sentinel 2 images in QGIS, more information in this link:
