Expat Life – Barcelona or Granada?

FC Barcelona vs Granada C.F: The big match is about to kick off.

I am often asked about Expat Life. If I preferred living in Barcelona or if I like Granada in the South of Spain best. Barcelona was my home from 1998 until 2006 although I´d been travelling to the Catalan capital from 1988 as a young student. Granada has been my hometown since 2006. Living in Andalusia is a huge contrast from Catalonia but I loved them both for different reasons.

Family Life in Spain asked me this question. The interview they gave me may help other expats find the perfect relocation city for them.

Will Barcelona & the famous Gaudi designs come out on top?

When I first moved to Spain  I left Nottingham and began my expat life in Barcelona.

After 9 years there I moved to the South of Spain, to the city of the Alhambra Palace, Granada.

I have found many positives in both cities and of course there is a downside to both places too.

Both Barcelona & Granada have first division teams in La Liga.

Find out which city wins?
