Barcelona Expat Events

Make the most of your Barcelona Expat Life

The "City Of Counts" offers an exciting intercultural experience for expats, starting with cultural highlights, like Parc Güell, a spectacular modernismo-style park with a great panorama of the whole city,, the folkloristic festivities on the occasion of Spain’s Día de la Hispanidad, up to getting a taste of traditional paella. The InterNations community helps you as an Barcelona expat to enjoy your expat stay in Spain to the fullest. Our members have already come across many of the questions you’ll have when starting your expatriate life in Barcelona and kindly offer you their assistance, from ʺIn which cases do I need a so-called "Residencia" to stay for longer than half a year?ʺ up to ʺWill I be able to make a living as an EFL teacher in a Spanish metropolis?ʺ.
