Spain’s tourism industry contributes a significant percentage to Spain’s GDP (about 10-11%), with millions of tourists visiting the beautiful city each year.
FOREIGN BUSINESS INVESTMENT
The popularity of the city also suggests that it has great potential to increase the quantity of international buyers. The city is the headquarter for many of the 5,000 foreign companies operating in Barcelona at the moment, which suggests that foreign investment has been a great success for them. Besides, there are many different sectors in Barcelona that have a lot of potential. There is a great possibility for international project investments and developments. Also, indicators in the Spanish economy reveal that the country has been improving constantly as its indexes have been growing. Especially in the last few years Barcelona and Madrid have, due to various factors, particularly qualified for an investment by foreign companies and private individuals. The diversified economy in Barcelona welcomes big international companies, which attracts an increasing number of foreign companies to set up in Barcelona.
THE AMOUNT YOU CAN GET FOR YOUR MONEY
In comparison to many other Metropolitan cities such as London and Paris, the price of purchasing a property in Barcelona is generally a lot more affordable. The cost of living in Barcelona is approximately 33% cheaper than London according to Expatistan.com. In a time of great uncertainty, lower costs in comparison to other European cities are definitely a beneficial factor when looking for an investment.
WEATHER and QUALITY OF LIFE
With around 2,524 hours of sunshine each year, it isn’t surprising that Barcelona is such a popular city. It is easy to see why many people love to visit this city. Due to the amount of sunshine, beautiful beaches, mediterranean cuisine and stunning architecture, Barcelona is a happy city.

Barcelona is a sought-after location in Europe. You can get to Barcelona within 1 to 3 hours from any European country. Not many European cities can combine a beautiful and historic aspect with the added element of the beach. One minute, you will be strolling through the charismatic and gothic streets of el Born, to then find yourself by the beautiful Mediterranean sea. Not many cities have a beach less than 10 minutes away from the centre! Another enticing factor of Barcelona is that it is within close proximity to the ski slopes.
