Spain is known for its warm climate. Reason enough for a large number of tourists to exchange the cold winter in their country for hours of sunshine and the pleasant Spanish temperatures. Or even for foreigners to come and live here.
Spain not only has the city in Europe with the most hours of sunshine. It also, has a Spanish city chosen as the best place in the world to live.
A survey carried out by the platform Holidu, which specialises in the search for holiday homes, has determined that a Spanish city is the sunniest in Europe.
This Spanish city has the most hours of sunshine in Europe
That’s Alicante, the city on the Costa Blanca, where the sun shines 349 hours a month. Converted to a year, that’s about 4,200 hours of sunshine. Together with Benidorm, Alicante is one of the main tourist attractions on the Spanish coast.
But there are more Spanish cities in the ranking. Alicante is followed by Murcia, which has an average of 346 hours of sunshine per month and is in third place on the list after Catania (Italy). This is followed by Malaga in fourth place. This popular Andalucian city has an average of 345 hours of sunshine per month. Valencia is also on the list, at number six, with 343 hours of sunshine.
Best city in the world to live in
InterNations, the world’s largest community of people living and working abroad, has released the results of the report revealing the best places in the world to live. Málaga has become the best city in the world to live and work. The southern Spanish city is known not only for its culture and gastronomy, but also in terms of friendliness, climate, time, work, leisure and work-life balance. In addition, there were two other aspects on which the majority of expats who participated in this survey agreed. These are safety in the city and the good public transport network.
