What do I need to know about living in Cordoba?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Cordoba, they said:

"Expats considering retirement in Cordoba, should be aware of several key factors. Firstly, it's important to understand the cost of living, which is generally lower than in many other European countries, but can vary depending on lifestyle and location within the city. Healthcare in Spain is of a high standard, with both public and private options available. Expats from EU countries can usually access the public healthcare system, while those from outside the EU may need private health insurance. The official language is Spanish, and while English is spoken in many tourist areas, it's less common in more residential areas, so learning some Spanish will be beneficial. The climate in Cordoba is Mediterranean, with hot summers and mild winters, which may be a consideration for those with health conditions affected by temperature. Spain has a double taxation agreement with many countries, which means you won't pay tax twice on the same income, but it's important to understand your tax obligations. The Spanish lifestyle is laid-back, with a focus on family, food, and outdoor activities. Shops and businesses often close for a few hours in the afternoon for siesta, which can take some getting used to. Spain has a high standard of education, with a mix of public, private, and international schools, which may be a consideration for those planning to retire with school-age children. Finally, it's important to understand the process of buying property in Spain, which can be complex and requires a number of legal steps. It's recommended to hire a lawyer who is familiar with the process," said one expat who made the move to Cordoba.
