Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

Located on the Mediterranean coast, Barcelona's sun-drenched beaches offers a scenic setting for jogging, bike ride or long leisurely stroll. The city is a mixture of architectural treasures from the 14th-century and modern tapas bars and bohemian restaurants. Catalan cooking is a celebrated tradition, and simple flavorful ingredients such as seafood and jamón (cured ham) are turned into remarkable delicacies. When the sun goes down, live music transform the city. Bars are filled and Barcelona's unabashed wild side comes out.

Women digital nomads should be careful with pickpockets. Barcelona is Europe's pickpocketing capital, especially in crowded areas such as public transportation, train, La Rambla and Raval. Avoid going by yourself to isolated stretches of beach or down empty city streets at night. The city beaches, particularly the ones adjoining Barceloneta, have proven to be quite lucrative for bag snatchers.

Barcelona is a very international city so you'll come across quite a few digital nomads or expats. There are tons of events for startups and there is a great coworking ecosystem with some amazing places to work from. Cost of living is affordable and as always, cheaper rental can be found away from the city center. The city has wifi spots located all around Barcelona’s beaches and parks and in most of the cafes and bars.

Early summer and fall are ideal times to visit, especially May to June and September to October. Even in the winter, days are crisp to cold (due to its proximity to the mountains) but often sunny. Summer (June through August) sees the heaviest tourist traffic, and the weather is hot and humid, even at night, as the temperature often only drops minimally.
