Could you give me 5 reasons to live in your city?

OK. Here’s a short listicle:

1. Walkable city. Barcelona’s infrastructure was specifically built in a way to bring people together. Our public transportation is modern, but there’s nothing as refreshing as a great walk or exploring the city through our environment-friendly bike share service.

2. The beaches within the city limits and beyond, each one with a distinct personality. You are spoiled for choice – from a 4-km pristine coastline in Barcelona to Caribbean-style sandy beaches in the Balearic Islands, just a 30-minute flight away.

3. Our authentic cuisine. Tapas, paella, crema catalana, mar i muntanya – they taste delicious no matter where you serve them. Enjoy great food on the seafront, in hidden gems and even at your friends’ homes.

4. People from all walks of life, that famous football club, world-class museums, wild fiestas and carnivals, fashion shows, concerts by famous artists. All these are part of Barcelona’s identity. And let’s not forget about the festivals and nightlife.

5. Weather. Along with Lisbon and Valetta, Barcelona is ranked as having the best climate of any city in Europe. We enjoy more than 2,500 hours of sunshine a year!
