We asked expats and digital nomads what they appreciate the most about the local culture in Spain. They wrote...

"Some of the things that frustrated me are now what I appreciate. I enjoy the conversation I have with the people at the fruit store or the post office while I am waiting in line. I like the reliance on our own two feet and not using the car. I appreciate that the family is VERY important and everyone takes off Sunday to spend time with them," wrote a member who made the move to Barcelona, Spain.

"Expats in Spain appreciate the laidback culture there, which allows people to take things slow and enjoy life. One of the most enjoyable aspects of Spanish culture for expats is the passion for food, with a wide selection of regional cuisines providing an array of flavors and experiences. Another popular aspect of the culture is the social life, which has plenty of fun events and lively nightlife. Furthermore, the Mediterranean climate, along with the beautiful beaches and stunning scenery, make the country an ideal place to live. Lastly, the locals' hospitable attitude towards foreigners makes expats instantly feel right at home in Spain," explained one expat living in Spain.
