When we asked people why foreigners move to Spain, they responded...

"There are several reasons - climate, cost of living (it is very cheap to live in Granada), location (access to ski resort in 45 min by bus, and to the beach in an hour), plenty of historical sites to see, plenty of cultural things to do (theater, music, dance, churches, cultural events). Because it's also a university town and has two of UNESCO world Heritage sites," explained one expat living in Granada, Spain.

"It's a medium sized college town that is very vibrant and inter-cultural Also near the coast and skiing," said another in Granada, Spain.
