Madrid y Barcelona siguen escalando en el ranking de mejores ciudades para vivir

Madrid y Barcelona escalan posiciones en la carrera de las mejores ciudades para vivir del mundo.

Spain for the win. Thanks to the improvement in healthcare between last February and March, the two most important cities in the country are among the cities that have risen the most in the ranking of best cities to live in on a global scale.

The Spanish capital and the city of Barcelona are among the cities that have climbed the most in the ranking of The global liveability index 2021, prepared by The Economist Intelligence Unit. It is no longer only good weather, beers and tapas that determine the lifestyle in the big Spanish cities; the key factor has been the good management since the beginning of the pandemic and the tremendous advantages that both cities offer in contrast to the rest, thus providing the rise in the ranking. 

Both cities have gained almost twenty-five points in terms of primary care thanks, the document stresses, to the fact that they have "coped better with the saturation of their healthcare compared to the previous wave of the pandemic."

The Catalan city has been placed on the 16th step and the Madrid city on the 19th, thus entering the top 20 best cities in the world to live.

From Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices we consider that these cities are still one of the best options to live, but the main reasons are still the same as before the pandemic; climate, gastronomic offer, leisure, combination of culture, wide geographic diversity and an increasingly cosmopolitan and international atmosphere.

On the other hand, the pandemic is changing social and work habits. We have accelerated the implementation of technology and as a consequence we have decentralized jobs and even delocalized them, we have made work schedules more flexible, and all of this is perfectly compatible with the offer of the most important cities in Spain.

If my company in Germany, or the UK, or France, etc. allows me to do so, why not set up my residence in Spain and work remotely with occasional trips to my headquarters?
