Valencia was ranked the #1 best expat destination in the world in the 2022 InterNations’ Expat Insider Report….and deservedly so.

A cosmopolitan city with a population of 838,000, Valencia is large enough to offer plenty of entertainment options but not too big to be overwhelming. The city boasts a range of historical, cultural and culinary surprises (paella originated in Valencia, say no more!)

With incredible architecture, both old and new, beautiful wide tree-lined boulevards and stunning sandy beaches, there is a lot to love about Valencia.

If outdoor activities are your thing, Valencia is close to many national parks – perfect for hiking, cycling, rock climbing and canyoning. Within Valencia you can’t go past Turia Park. This 10 kilometre park, built in a riverbed, runs right through the city and is the largest urban green-space in Spain.

And if that is not enough, Valencia enjoys 300 days of sunlight a year. What are you waiting for?!

It is Spain’s biggest economic hub and is popular with the technology, tourism and trade industries. The city plays host to 40% of international businesses in Spain.

According to the 2022 InterNations’ Expat Insider Report, Madrid is ranked the third best city in the world for expats. Madrid is a great hub for exploring other regions in Spain (and beyond) and is connected by one of the world’s fastest high speed rail networks.



Barcelona is one of Europe’s most cosmopolitan cities and takes the cake for unrivalled architecture including many of Gaudi’s madcap modernist buildings. The city is also known for its stunning beaches and buzzing nightlife.
