Living in Barcelona with young children

When moving to Barcelona, international families find it one of the most child-friendly cities in Europe, given its numerous parks, play-areas, beaches and overall outdoor lifestyle. Living in Barcelona, the city’s family-friendly culture means that children are adored by local people. 

 

Moving to Barcelona for an unparalleled lifestyle

Many families are moving to Barcelona as it is seen as one of the world’s most vibrant and progressive cities. When living in Barcelona, Catalan and Spanish are both spoken in equal measure and increasingly residents are speaking more English as the city gains its reputation as an international hub. 

 

Fantastic education for expats in Barcelona

There are numerous excellent international schools as well as reputable concertadas (state subsidised schools) and local schools, an added pull for the increasing numbers of international families moving to Barcelona. 

 

Moving to Sant Cugat

Sant Cugat is a very popular town for international families due to its proximity to Barcelona, good schooling and numerous green spaces. Sant Cugat is a typical commuter town, well connected with Barcelona by FGC train (running every 3 minutes in rush hour, 10 minutes off peak and Sundays). It is surrounded by countryside so is also ideal for nature lovers, with walking paths and routes in Collserola (protected national park area).
