Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain. Its port is the second most important in the whole of Europe and it has been recognised on an international level as a cruise ship destination thanks to the Cruise Insight award.
Barcelona is one of the most important cities in the world in so far as art and architecture and it is well known for its rich history, which dates back to Roman times, as well as for its cultural heritage. Modern art is especially well represented in this city. Painters such as Joan Miró and Pablo Picasso have museums dedicated to their works. Barcelona's great architecture includes innovative designs by Antonio Gaudí. The Sagrada Familia and La Pedrera are two of the most perfect samples of his architectural legacy. The sculptures and paintings by another of Barcelona's great artists, Joan Miró, can be seen is several of the city's open spaces, such as public and private residences.
Barcelona boasts a vast range of historic buildings. Some of which date back to the Middles Ages and visitors can even come across remains, disseminated among the oldest part of the city, of the ancient Barcino, the Roman settlement which can be considered as the seed of what centuries later became Barcelona as we know it. Many old buildings of notable and noble elegance can be found in the Gothic Quarter, which has been maintained surprisingly intact and is an ideal place for getting to know the characteristics of what is known as civil Gothic.
Each year, the city hosts a 3-day music festival called Sónar. This festival focuses on modern music and multimedia arts. Among the main buildings destined to music within the city, we come across the Gran Teatre del Liceu, the Palau de la Música and L'Auditori, in which it is normal to find the Symphonic Orchestra of Barcelona and National of Catalonia.
Barcelona has a mild Mediterranean climate. Its territory is limited by the mouths of the rivers Llobregat and Besòs, and the Serra de Collserola mountain range, as well as by the Mediterranean sea. There are large forests close to the city and several beaches along its coastline.
Passeig de Gràcia is the most expensive street in Barcelona and the second most expensive in Spain. The largest and most expensive properties are spread over streets such as Enrique Granados, Bruc, Diagonal and Gran Vía and are known as the "Golden square", located in the Eixample district.
The cost of living in Barcelona is among the highest in Spain. But the city offers a very high standard of living to its inhabitants and all those who decide to pay the city a visit. This has helped the city become a desirable tourist destination.
Barcelona's geographic location positions the city close to Andorra, a well-known tax haven and tourist destination in southern Europe.
Barcelona is one of first cities in Spain to welcome modern times. Politically, Spain is organised under the form of a constitutional monarchy, hence it is currently a modern country, with plentiful civil liberties and has been a democratic country for the past forty years. Spain is a member of the European Union and of NATO and it is currently a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council. Belonging to these international organisations guarantees political stability within the country and favours closer ties with some of the world's most important countries.
Spain is organised into territories, these are known as Autonomous Communities. This type of political and territorial organisation, which is the Spanish version of the decentralisation of powers typical of federalism, was established and gathered in the Spanish Constitution of 1978. The State of Autonomies has played an essential role in the modernisation of the country, which has in turn enabled the possibility of paying close-up attention to the problems arising in each individual territory. The integration of all these territories is guaranteed by a fundamental fact: Spain has an excellent road network, a magnificent airport service (including airports with significant air traffic in cities such as Madrid, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Málaga, Gran Canaria, Alicante or Tenerife) and a railway network with high speed rail linking some of the country's most important cities and constantly increasing its network.
In Barcelona, property provides potential returns. One of which derives from the rent paid by the tenants of the property and the other is known as "capital gains", the property as such, the value of which is constantly increasing.
In Barcelona, monthly rental ranges from 11 to 14 Euros per square metre or in other words, the monthly rental amounts to 950 Euros for an apartment of about 85square metres and 2,300 Euros for one of about 200square metres.
Barcelona has an attractive real estate market which is soon becoming one of the most precious objects of desire for international investors. After all, investing in real estate facilitates the perception of capital earnings with a different cycle to the ups and downs inherent to other types of investments.
If you wish to invest in buying commercial premises, apartments, blocks of flats or offices, we can advise you and guide you in order to facilitate the entire process.
In the same manner, if you wish to rent a property (apartment, premises or office) which you already own, we will handle the tasks involving finding tenants, collecting rent payments and the obligations assumed by the tenant when signing the lease contract and at any later date. We also take care of the inconveniences involving maintenance and communication with the tenants on your behalf.
The main airport in Catalonia is Barcelona-El Prat international airport, which is located south east of Barcelona, just 12 km from the city centre.
Barcelona-El Prat airport can be accessed from the centre of Barcelona via train, bus or a permanent tax service.
Barcelona-El Prat is the second largest airport in Spain, only after the Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas international airport and it is one of the most important airports in Europe.

Barcelona is a city with an excellent road infrastructure and is a model for the promotion of motorised public transport and other non-motorised means, all with the aim of maintaining the current level of service and not generating collapses on the city's roads.
The increase in the average number of occupants of private vehicles from 1.2 to 1.4 people/vehicle and the reduction in CO2 emissions down to 120 gr/km are a few of the objectives which the local authorities have established as their goals.
Within Barcelona city, the railway network is the main infrastructure offer for moving around. The Barcelona railway network considerably increases the global public transport offer and reduces private transport by 15.4%. This reduction has a direct and very positive incidence on the reduction in contamination.
Sants station, the city's main railway station, was the first station in Spain to offer international routes. This station is also the meeting point for the city's suburban lines and those within the metropolitan area. Taking all these lines into consideration, in 2014 Barcelona-Sants station provided service to more than 40 million passengers.
Barcelona has 9 underground lines and Europe's longest underground line.
The city's public transport offer is completed by a comprehensive network of buses belonging to the company Transportes Metropolitanos de Barcelona (Barcelona Metropolitan Transport), comprised by 6 tram lines and 56 stops owned by the same company and by the railway network belonging to Ferrocarriles de la Generalitat de Catalunya, which connects the city with regions such as Vallès, the Baix Llobregat and l'Anoia.
Bicing is a public and individual bicycle rental system, with 400 Bicing stations where one can collect and return bicycles, it allows for users to cover short or medium distances in very little time.
Barcelona Port is one of the city's main economic drivers and is a key point within the Mediterranean.
Barcelona Port has become the first port in Europe in so far as cruise ship destinations.
Barcelona Port is a leader in so far as road traffic of Short Sea Shipping (SSS) and has two specialised terminals for lorries, vehicles and passengers.
Barcelona Port is one of the largest terminals in so far as biofuels and fuel products within the Mediterranean region and in so far as movement of goods.
Barcelona promotes energy saving and energy efficiency, promotes renewable energies and aims to improve the environmental quality of the urban area, with special focus on aspects such as noise, lighting or the quality of the air.
On the 28th September 2013, the law in support of entrepreneurs and their movement in a global sphere came into effect. This law introduces a new framework (Title V Section 2 International Mobility) for eligible immigration, promoting the international mobility of professionals and executives and attracting foreign investment.
Our aim is to provide advice and support to clients who want to get residency permits in Spain through property investments. The proposal is intended to encourage foreign investors to buy property in Barcelona, thereby assisting the recovery of Spain's property market.
A key factor is that Spain is part of the Schengen agreement, meaning that those with Spanish residency should be able to travel freely within the Schengen zone (a group of 26 European countries that have abolished passport and immigration controls at their borders.
Residency in Spain handles any subsequent Residency Visa renewal applications including spouses and children under the age of 18.
