A little bit about the city: Barcelona

Barcelona’s stunning beaches, balmy weather and striking architecture are all great reasons to settle in this beautiful city. Home to many restaurants, museums and traditions, there’s certainly a lot to explore. One feature the city is certainly proud of is that it is home to 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, largely thanks to Gaudi’s architecture which can be found at various sites citywide.

Barcelona’s compact city centre and excellent transport system make getting around trouble-free and commuting time minimal. Home to a flourishing international community, Barcelona is a great city to relocate to if you’re hoping to feel at home.
