Reasons to live in Spain

23 June 23

Hearing the word Spain and many positive images come to mind. Good weather, incredible gastronomy, and friendly and happy people. For most it is paradise, but perhaps it is necessary to dig a little deeper to really understand what the country has to offer. Why do so many choose it as their new place of residence? In this post, we will give you the 9 main reasons why you will love living in Spain as an expatriate or foreigner. After reading this you will not consider any other option!

The perfect climate:

Forget about those climates where you can't go outside during the winter due to how cold it is. Well, in Spain you will find the ideal temperature throughout the year. 320 sunny days!

But that is not all. One of the main advantages of the Spanish territory is its landscape diversity. If you prefer to enjoy a more humid and rainy climate, the north will be the perfect place for you. Asturias, the Basque Country, Galicia... regions that fit into this category and have a lot to offer.

Spanish culture:

Wherever you go, you will live in the history of Spain and you will be immersed in it. Spain is a nation that, since its origins, has been built on many different groups, all of them with their peculiarities and differences. The result? A diverse and divided culture. A set of regions with their own traditions and specialties.

Public health:

Spain has one of the best public health systems in the world, according to the Health Care Access and Quality Index (HAQ).

And the truth is that the quality of life in Spain is incredible. The hours of sunshine, the Mediterranean diet (full of fruits and vegetables) and the relaxed but enjoyable lifestyle are all contributing factors to a country with one of the highest life expectancies in the world.

Quality of life:

The previous point inevitably leads us to the incredible quality of life that you will enjoy in the country. And yes, we dared to say that it is the best quality of life in the world. And you wouldn't be able to enjoy this quality of life if it weren't for the low cost of living in the country. Many things, such as food and products in supermarkets, dining out in a restaurant, and even housing and rent are much cheaper than in any other European country.

Ease of obtaining a residence permit:

There are many options for non-EU (non-EU) citizens planning to move to Spain to live and work. Getting a visa is really easy.

For example, there is the investor visa, a residence permit that can be obtained simply by investing €500,000 in real estate. Considering that you will need a house to live in anyway, this is a very good option.

But there are other permits that are adapted to many specific situations experienced by foreigners from all over the world who want to start living in Spain. For example, if you plan to retire in this country, a non-profit visa will be ideal.

Its gastronomy:

And finally, food and drinks. And it is that Spain probably has the best wines in the world. And that is why wine tourism is so popular today in the country. If you come to Spain you cannot have a meal without a glass of wine. It is almost mandatory. White, rosé, red… in fact all the wines are incredible. Of course, tapas is what we find at the heart of Spanish gastronomy. Small plates of typical Spanish food that will be the perfect vehicle for a pleasant social interaction.
