Benefits Of Living in Spain

Few countries on earth come close to the total package that is life in Spain. If one wants beautiful beaches which equal anything found in France, Italy, Florida or California, Spain has them in droves. If it’s beautiful countryside, fabulous landscapes, mountainous peaks that are covered with an abundance of snow in the winter, inland Spain offers all that and more.

When it comes to vibrant, opulent cities, Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia are a match for the best that London, Berlin, Paris, Rome and Milan have to offer.

The standard of living in Spain is high, but the cost of living is low, and even property is still more competitively priced in Spain than virtually any of the country in Western Europe. The standard of Spanish education – both public and private – is excellent, and the quality of healthcare in Spain, both at a public and private level is the envy of Europe. Unsurprisingly, citizens of Spain have the longest life expectancy in Europe!

 

Spain, Europe’s California

Spain is often labeled Europe’s “California”, and while it certainly encompasses all of the life benefits and resources of America’s wealthiest state, it is far from reaching its full potential. Spain is world renowned as a perfect holiday destination, blessed as it is with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, stunning landscapes and two of the most vibrant cities in Europe in Madrid and Barcelona. Like Italy and France, Spain also offers the opportunity for unmatched winter breaks at its numerous ski resorts.

Spain’s warm climate and the quality, abundance and cheapness of its food has resulted in a nation of healthy, naturally athletic individuals, turning Spain into the no.1 sporting nation of the past couple of decades, just as countries like Australia and the US have been before, with a conveyer belt of  great tennis players, golfers, racing drivers and of course, basketball and football players.

 

Rebounding From “El Crisis”

In 2008 the global banking crash hit Spain harder than any other nation in Europe, and it has taken longer to recover, just over a decade in fact. most countries, what it hasn’t been seen as is an economic powerhouse, which Spain looked like becoming in 2006 when it was the eighth largest economy in the world. However after several years of recession, Spain finally seems to have turned the corner, its economy is on the rise, tourism is at an all-time high and people are spending money again. It could also be the perfect time for foreign investors to take advantage of Spain’s Citizenship by Investment Program.

 

Spain Facts & Stats

Spain – officially the Kingdom of Spain – is a sovereign state located in southwestern Europe. It is the largest country on Europe’s Iberian Peninsula, which it shares with Portugal, Andorra and the British territory of Gibraltar. Spain is made up of seventeen autonomous communities and two autonomous cities. Aside from its mainland, the Balearic Islands off the Spanish coast, the Canary Islands off the North African coast and Ceuta, a city on the north coast of Africa are also part of Spain.

Spain is a country of great geographical diversity, ranging from the dry, sub-Saharan climate of Andalucia in the south, to the much cooler, rainier province of Galicia in the northwest whose climate is likened to that of Ireland or Wales. Spain shares the longest unbroken border in the European Union (1,214 km) with Iberian neighbor Portugal. Aside from its aforementioned Iberian neighbors Gibraltar and Andorra, Spain also shares a 656.3 km border with France, and its coastline encompasses both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic oceans.

While Spain is a democracy and has a parliamentary government and a prime minister, it is also a constitutional monarchy ruled over by King Felipe IV. Its capital city is Madrid, but its second city Barcelona is also an important business hub and one of the most popular touristic cities in Europe. Spain is a member of a multitude of international organizations including the European Union (EU), the Eurozone, the Council of Europe (CoE), the United Nations (UN), the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the World Trade Organization (WTO).

 

Economy

In 2006, Spain had the eighth largest economy in the world, much of which was based on a vibrant and thriving construction industry. The global economic crash of 2008 hit Spain harder than most other countries in Europe as its construction industry virtually ground to a halt, resulting in 20% of the workforce becoming unemployed. Spain dropped to the world’s 14th largest economy, and took a while to recover. However by 2013-14 it had turned the corner, and at the start of 2017 is nominally ranked as the world’s 10th largest economy, and enjoying an economic GDP rate of 3.2, its best since 2007.

In terms of landmass, Spain is the largest country in Western Europe, is rich in natural resources and has a population of 46.5 million so unsurprisingly it has a diverse economy powered by a multitude of sectors. 70% of Spain’s economy is generated by its services industry, followed by construction, agriculture, farming and fishing.

Tourism is also a vital part of the Spanish economy and contributes around 11% to Spain’s annual GDP. As the third most visited country in the world, Spain attracts 75.3 million tourists each year and ranks number one out of 141 countries listed on the Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Index published by the World Economic Forum.

Spain is classified as a high income economy and among the countries of very high human development. According to The Economist, Spain has the world’s 10th highest quality of life.
