What is the minimum wage in Barcelona? You can calculate your own monthly cost living in Barcelona by clicking directly on this link.

I am here over 10 years and very few people earn over 25k and normal people earn about a month after tax. Teachers get around if they are working in a school, otherwise they need to jaunt from one end of the city to the other giving lessons.

Being self-employed is ridiculous and very costly so most people work in black. Airbnb has made a real mess of the city for anyone thats not on a northern European salary as its out-priced the centre due to landlords wanting quick fast money.

Its a great city for a nice lifestyle but if you want a career, pension, quality housing etc. Im a dentist and id like to move to Barcelona. How much do dentists earn there? A hole perhaps! And for outlying districts?! Obviously there are areas that are exceptions.. Oh yes…nice! Good luck!

Great information. Is this information some what out of date? Thanks, Rony. You can also use Cabify up there, and presumably Uber as well. More about that in my article on pros and cons of living in Madrid.

Digital nomads are all over the place, as are coworking spaces that attract an international crowd. And all the other advantages of living in Barcelona, like good weather and a lower cost of living than other world cities, mean that there are expats from many different countries calling the city home.

The mix of people seems to be a bit different than in Madrid, as well. Although I must say that the international community is one of my favorite things about living here in the capital. This comes with the international community, I guess: lots of good food from many different countries. We had some simple fish dishes there, made with top quality ingredients. We also had excellent Mexican and Italian food — head to. And in our wanderings, we saw some Chinese, Japanese and Korean restaurants that looked pretty good.

So I suppose that later on, in the summer months, it would be considerably more crowded with tourists from around Europe and wherever else. Barceloneta is the big one, and has some bars and restaurants right up on the sand.

Other than that, there are a few more beaches up along the coast to the northeast. And plenty more in other places in Catalonia, if you feel like travelling. Like anywhere in Spain, jobs are relatively scarce, and salaries are lower than in the rest of Europe.

On the other hand, people in Denmark spend all their disposable income to come to Spain on vacation — and we lucky expats get to live here all year round. And when I say jobs are scarce, I mean that unemployment in the city of Barcelona is about 8. Good jobs are even more scarce. Others work in the service industry, or start their own businesses, or work in international companies. And the quality of life will probably compensate your lower salary, at least for a while.

A lot of people move to Spain for the weather — and Barcelona is well-known for its mild Mediterranean climate. Not too cold either. Additionally, Barcelona enjoys a bit more than hours of sunshine a year — about average for the south of Europe. Not much need to beat the summer heat or winter cold in other words. Other than that, I was surprised at the low prices I paid for other things. Taxis, like I said, were cheap. And so were a lot of our meals.

Not all. I suppose it depends — a lot — on the neighborhood or the specific bar, but I also had coffee and beer for barely over a euro, which is difficult in any big city.

All a matter of perspective. People in Madrid complain about the mess all the time — especially the dog turds on the sidewalks. Or any dirty streets at all, really. Generally, things seemed more well-maintained than in Madrid.

A bit more northern, a bit more French. You know. Granted, the masses of tourists are mostly focused around a few small points. Sagrada Familia is a mess of cranes and scaffolding, by the way. Official slogan: years later and still under construction.

Be prepared to pay an arm and a leg to get in. But other people should just stay home… cluttering up my selfies with their lovehandles and ugly sandals. I assume that mass tourism affects Barcelona residents in many ways. And while I was up there, I definitely saw signs, flags and graffiti making reference to the issue. But I assume this whole thing will die down sooner or later, and people in both Madrid and Barcelona will go back to their usual grumbling about corruption, moronic politicians , the economy, etc.

It's difficult to say which is the "normal" salary in Barcelona. The minimum salary for working people, the so called "salario mínimo", is euros ( US dolars. And all the other advantages of living in Barcelona, like good Like anywhere in Spain, jobs are relatively scarce, and salaries are lower than. Cost of living in Madrid; Cost of living in Barcelona; Cost of living in Valencia; Cost The principle reason is because salaries are notoriously low in relation to inflation. The average disposable income per household in Spain is just €20, a.

Whereas earners in Spain have to pay tax on all of their earnings. Practically the amount you pay depends on how much you earn. When it comes to working out exactly how much it will cost you to live in Spain there are a number of elements that will help you understand this.

These include exactly how much you might expect to spend on a daily basis on food, drink and dining out as well as how much you may have to pay on bills including water, electricity and garbage disposal. By knowing exactly how much you may expect to pay in terms of renting or buying a property you will also be able to get a much better idea of your potential monthly outgoings in the country. To give you an idea of how much you might expect to spend we have highlighted a few common costs from Numbeo below:.

Again these might not seem like huge costs, yet when combined they can easily add a large chunk of money to your overall living costs. The cost of utilities varies widely based on the area of Spain that you choose to live in, in fact some in some cases the cheaper areas may cost half the amount of more expensive areas.

We give an idea of this below:. The amount you will spend on accommodation such as in rent or purchasing a property is likely to be the biggest outgoing you will have in any city you decide to live in.

Similar to the variations in utility costs, rental and purchase prices vary widely depending on which part of Spain you decide to live in. In this case the cheapest option is less than half the price of many of the more expensive options, below we show an example of this range across the country:.

Study the figures above and it is clear that Alicante is one of the cheapest places to live in Spain. In comparison, the cost of living in Barcelona is more than twice the price when it comes to rent and almost that much when it comes to purchasing a property. This is similar in many ways to the costs of living in Madrid and San Sebastian where the cost of living may be seen as unreasonably high in comparison to other cities within the country. However, when you look at the wider picture and assess the quality of life in these more expensive areas you are likely to find that they are significantly higher.

Also the job opportunities, especially in Madrid and Barcelona are likely to be more prolific and better paid than in areas such as Alicante and Malaga which mainly rely on tourism as their main profit makers.

You can read more about quality of life across different areas in Spain through our guide on the best places to live in Spain. Knowing how much it will cost you to live in Spain is only part of the equation when it comes to working out whether you will be better or worse off financially in Spain.

To give you a general understanding of how much you may be able to make in the country, Compare My Move crunched some data provided by Numbeo. This showed us that although the cost of living may be much lower than in the UK, on average the salaries are also Many of the top paying professions in the country are the same as here in the UK.

Unsurprisingly, the most densely populated regions in Spain where expat Brits are working are in the south of the country. This is likely due to what the areas provides them with such as a more relaxed way of life and warmer climate year round. The two most densely populated regions are those of Alicante and Malaga, both of which we have already identified as two of the cheapest areas to live in the country.

And all the other advantages of living in Barcelona, like good weather and a lower cost of living than other world cities, mean that there are expats from many different countries calling the city home.

Totally recommendable.

Before booking your Spain removals and enjoying long hot days and an incredible Mediterranean diet, it's worth knowing if your new life will be financially possible.

Of course this cost actually widely depends on where you live and the lifestyle you lead. For example, living in the capital city or other popular areas, renting a large home and dining out every evening will cost you more than cheaper areas and less lavish lifestyles.

In the rest of this article we will go into the details of what the real cost of living in Spain might be based on your situation. Spain has always been well known for generally having much lower living costs than the UK. According to Numbeo, the overall average cost of living in Spain is One major area contributes to this fact, as rent is on average This is part of the reason that so many Brits make the move over to Spain in order to benefit from a financially better quality of life.

Even when you compare major cities such as Madrid and Barcelona to similar cities in the UK such as London, lower living costs are still very apparent. For example, stats from Numbeo highlight that living in Madrid is actually In terms of healthcare in the country things work a bit differently than here in the UK.

Where the British NHS is paid for by the tax payer and free to use for any British citizen or those that qualify by living in the country. In Spain, for those that work the system is similar, with contributions to the health system being taken out of your wages and therefore making using the system free. For those that do not work or for some reason do not qualify, you may need to arrange additional healthcare insurance.

Thanks xpto on Apr 15, : Hello, I was offered a job that pays 3. For example for an apartment which costs 1. Anyone going through the same situation? Any workarounds suggested? GKM on Mar 22, : Some clarity on the salaries and cost of living. As a foreigner, I've been living in Barcelona for 14 years now.

Healthcare is absolutely free and in some neigbourhoods doesn't even make sense to pay private medical healthcare, i. Great variety. Most nightclubs are free to enter until 1. Expenses included. For a single person, that's quite good, given that the offices are close to the beach and healthcare is free.

Cost of living in Madrid is similar, while Valencia rent and cost of living is twice less. Seems a deal, but Valencia doesn't have the charm of Madrid and Barcelona. Infrastructure is top-notch. Weather in Barcelona is great for european city with the only exception being mid-July to mid-August when it's extremely hot and humid 30C all day all night.

Anything less limits your lifestlye and anything more improves on it. So you aim to earn at lest double that in these areas to have a decent lifestyle. Anonymous on Mar 20, : Hey! I'm wandering if approximately 2, EUR gross is enaugh to live in Barcelona? Thanks in advance! I am a doctoral student from he US finishing their degree in Econ, with a scholarship from the Catalan government. I've known people who are able to live off this - I haven't managed, but this comes from your lifestyle and what you define as comfortable for example, I eat out more than I should be.

I had savings that I built up from when I worked in the US that I've been consuming slowly over the past 5. What is comfortably? My gym membership is All in all, I consider it quite cheap. I would say that here, this type of salary is outside the norm corporate bank jobs, for example at la Caixa, will pay a little more than this. You'll find that the labor market is dominated by call center work. But then again, except for rent unless you're fortunate enough to purchase your own place and pay less , most other aspects of life here is cheap.

At the time, it was an improvement in terms of what I got for my salary, the climate, a quieter pace of life Most people get around euro net pcm. All of it will go to your landlord around euro pcm for a 65sq metres 2 bed appartment is about right these days in a decent area.

Bear in mind They will charge you aroung administrative fees, they call it just to rent you the flat. Then you will need at least a 2 months deposit euro which at the end of the contract you will or will not get back AKA bye bye euro.

The flat will never be perfect and once you move in Yes, I said cold and damp, because the idea of insulation never crossed a Spanish mind and most places don't look onto charming plazas, but into dark and dingy courtyards. If you are British, winters will feel like early spring to you though. Locals are not that friendly.

They may want to improve their English and talk to you, but do not expect making many friends here. They keep to themselves pretty much. And this is far from a quiet place any more The impact on what you will pay for food, clothing, etc is major.

Firstly to work as a PA I think you would need fluent Spanish at least lots of places also want Catalan. And, assuming you are a South African national you would need a work-permit, which I think would be difficult as people can recruit from Spanish and other EU nationals who don't need a work permit and that is a very big pool.

Jo-Ann, Marinada and Lynda explained the situation very clear. If you follow the "chals" salary suggestion you'll get no job at all. And as Lynda said, companies will prefer EU citizens who don't need a special permit to work here.

And of course, you'll need a fluent Spanish and Catalan as you'll have to deal with catalan persons and documents. Living in Barcelona is not so expensive as other european cities but isn't also cheap. Lynda, yes "Mama hotel" is the best.

In Spain, there is a minimum wage set by the government which increases each year, although not always in line with the inflation. This is the minimum that your employer must pay you regardless of what type of work you do, or the number of hours you work.

The figure may sound small, but when you consider that your living costs might be much less than in other comparable European cities, you might be surprised to find that in Barcelona, a little goes a long way.

Of course, the amount you earn will always be linked to the type of work you do. The best way to forecast what you might be paid for the type of work you do is to look at job adverts which should give an idea of salary expectations , then use an online tax calculator in order to work out your salary after tax.

So sue me. Morena and I ended up taking a lot of taxis because it was just better that way — taxis are cheap, and it beats spending 45 minutes to go 4 km on the metro. You can also use Cabify up there, and presumably Uber as well. More about that in my article on pros and cons of living in Madrid.

Digital nomads are all over the place, as are coworking spaces that attract an international crowd. And all the other advantages of living in Barcelona, like good weather and a lower cost of living than other world cities, mean that there are expats from many different countries calling the city home. The mix of people seems to be a bit different than in Madrid, as well. Although I must say that the international community is one of my favorite things about living here in the capital.

This comes with the international community, I guess: lots of good food from many different countries. We had some simple fish dishes there, made with top quality ingredients. We also had excellent Mexican and Italian food — head to. And in our wanderings, we saw some Chinese, Japanese and Korean restaurants that looked pretty good.

So I suppose that later on, in the summer months, it would be considerably more crowded with tourists from around Europe and wherever else. Barceloneta is the big one, and has some bars and restaurants right up on the sand. Other than that, there are a few more beaches up along the coast to the northeast.

And plenty more in other places in Catalonia, if you feel like travelling. Like anywhere in Spain, jobs are relatively scarce, and salaries are lower than in the rest of Europe. On the other hand, people in Denmark spend all their disposable income to come to Spain on vacation — and we lucky expats get to live here all year round.

And when I say jobs are scarce, I mean that unemployment in the city of Barcelona is about 8. Good jobs are even more scarce. Others work in the service industry, or start their own businesses, or work in international companies. And the quality of life will probably compensate your lower salary, at least for a while. A lot of people move to Spain for the weather — and Barcelona is well-known for its mild Mediterranean climate.

Not too cold either. Additionally, Barcelona enjoys a bit more than hours of sunshine a year — about average for the south of Europe.

Not much need to beat the summer heat or winter cold in other words. And, assuming you are a South African national you would need a work-permit, which I think would be difficult as people can recruit from Spanish and other EU nationals who don't need a work permit and that is a very big pool.

The gross monthly average salary of spanish workers in was euros, % more than the previous year, according to data The New Barcelona Post - Good News. Spaniards residing abroad: where do they live?

I lived in Barcelona for almost 14 years as a retired foreigner but I left in November Muggings and murders are frequent these days in beautiful Barcelona, sadly. I wouldn't recommend it honestly. Stay out of the plaza at night even though it's normally crowded due to abductions and armed robberies.

Anything South of the city is dangerous day or night. Dress down don't wear Ray Ban sunglasses or expensive jewelry avoid anyone that stops you on the street to chit chat. Eat where the locals normally eat and avoid touristy restaurants if possible.

Hope this helped some have a safe trip. Is it safe? Are there areas to seek or avoid? To the rest of you on here who don't have a clue figure this out. Look at how rapidly the Euro is declining and how many expats are pulling the pin getting out of Barcelona selling everything.

That's a very good indication of the failing Euro. Spainards are in it to fleece money from foreigners no doubt. When Brexit finishes with the Eurozone it'll cease and desist. No money no honey no euro valuation. People in Barcelona are jerks towards foreigners, that's a given.

Asking what's a good salary is ideotic too especially since the Euro is so volitale,DUH!!!!! Realtalk on Feb 20, : Would the dum dums who keep posting about their obvious decent salary pleas go off-load their insecurities elsewhere! Barcelona is shit for the long-term and ok for years max. Locals aren't too friendly as they see you as a cause of the cities many economical problems.

Salaries are awful, work hours long, rent is super high, apartments are cold as hell in winter time. Good jobs are hard to come by and there is a surplus of MBA studenty and people with masters willing to work way below their usual fee demands. The foo and weather is good but thats about it, these locals are so greedy. Don't believe me? My advise is, come for a year or two and then go somewhere better for serious things like pensions, salaries, house prices that make sense etc.

And oh yeah I forgot to mention the insane amount of theft here. Anonymous on Sep 26, : Hello, JD on Sep 19, : Hey there, just want a heads up on the renting scheme, is there any way or service, in order to avoid upfronting cash to a shady realtor?

Some whay you put the deposit on an escrow account or similar? If you pay the full year upfront or half is there any cash incentive usually given in the market? Realtors get the money from the renters commision rather from the owner right? Just ideas Naoise on Aug 30, : 50K gross is a very good salary in Barcelona.

Selfish people like you don't deserve an answer! It's that simple! Supply Chain Specialist on Aug 04, : Please is 50K euro gross annual before tax enough to move to Barcelona with my wife not working , with two kids 4 yrs and 2yrs all girls.

The company will take care of relocation expenses. Considering the cost of kindergarten for two in a bilingual catalan and english school system and rent for 2 - 3 room apartment possibly outside the center of the city. Would this offer be able to sustain me and my family and make little savings?

Anonymous on Jul 12, : Hello, Am I going to have a decent life? With the cost of life of Barcelona with 40k you would get barely a mid-class life and no savings for buying an house or planning to retire early with good money. Already in cheaper cities in Poland IT specialists working for corps they get easily EUR net a month, and working for more interesting projects than those in Spain. The company will be in charge about relocation and visa. Is this a good payment for an IT company and that would be good salary to live there?

Thanks Anonymous on Jun 24, : Ola Raquel, 20k is pretty low considering the cost of living in Barcelona these days. If you decide to live outside of city centre you have a lower rent but a higher cost with transports and spend time commuting.

It costs times more to rent an apartment and the salaries are still the same as a number of years ago. To rent an apartment you need to pay: 1. Their fees. Two to three rents as deposit. Raquel Nunes on May 15, : Hello, I received a proposal of I'll need to move and find a place to stay. Is this a confortable monthly payment? Thanks xpto on Apr 15, : Hello, I was offered a job that pays 3. For example for an apartment which costs 1. Anyone going through the same situation? Any workarounds suggested?

GKM on Mar 22, : Some clarity on the salaries and cost of living. As a foreigner, I've been living in Barcelona for 14 years now. Healthcare is absolutely free and in some neigbourhoods doesn't even make sense to pay private medical healthcare, i.

Great variety. Most nightclubs are free to enter until 1. Expenses included. For a single person, that's quite good, given that the offices are close to the beach and healthcare is free.

Cost of living in Madrid is similar, while Valencia rent and cost of living is twice less. Seems a deal, but Valencia doesn't have the charm of Madrid and Barcelona. Infrastructure is top-notch. Weather in Barcelona is great for european city with the only exception being mid-July to mid-August when it's extremely hot and humid 30C all day all night.

Anything less limits your lifestlye and anything more improves on it. So you aim to earn at lest double that in these areas to have a decent lifestyle. Anonymous on Mar 20, : Hey! I'm wandering if approximately 2, EUR gross is enaugh to live in Barcelona?

Thanks in advance! I am a doctoral student from he US finishing their degree in Econ, with a scholarship from the Catalan government.

And so were a lot of our meals. Not all. I suppose it depends — a lot — on the neighborhood or the specific bar, but I also had coffee and beer for barely over a euro, which is difficult in any big city.

All a matter of perspective. People in Madrid complain about the mess all the time — especially the dog turds on the sidewalks.

Or any dirty streets at all, really. Generally, things seemed more well-maintained than in Madrid. A bit more northern, a bit more French. You know. Granted, the masses of tourists are mostly focused around a few small points. Sagrada Familia is a mess of cranes and scaffolding, by the way.

Namely I want to avoid depresive nature of given flat and have at least two choices so I could feel like I'm in control of anything.

I telling myself I'm in that great situation that I can afford living here, but oh boy it's not easy. The issue is that they absolutely don't care. The whole city doesn't care. Neither government, or people. Diogo on Jan 07, : Manuel,I dont understand your comment. Where do spend your money? So, before saying those things, explain that you say that because you drink, smoke, go to parties, maybe have a car or a moto, go out for dinner a lot, etc.

Obviously, it will always depend on the kind of life you have. Personally, I prefer to hearn a bit less and have good weather. Money is not everything and countries with bad weather are depressive! That's why you find so many nordics living here. Less than that forget about it.

Anyway while the city is generally convenient and pretty, it's plagued by migrants committing crimes every day more violently and political conflict in the streets which seem to be on the increase. The social situation isn't good. Most people are either very burdened by problems or they're consumed by party life and are out of their minds. In general society seems unstable and not cohesive at all.

There's not a sense of community and uncertainty looms. So although you can work, have your place, your vehicle, your public "free" healthcare, proximity to plenty of awesome natural spaces of all sorts, generally good food and ease of transportation etc etc, you can't expect to come here to an utopia.

Many people lower their guard and end up scorched. Barcelona is perfectly located on the Mediterranean, except for a couple of very hot summer months, the weather is sunny and mild and it's simply a great location climatwise.

Also, despite the Catalans being a bit closed off, unless you come out with the topic of Independendence, people are friendly here, which is, with the sun, what I missed the most from the South. These are the main advantages of the city. One other thing, even if not experienced first hand is healthcare, which is tax subsidised and great quality.

At the hand of the day I'm glad I came here to see that, as much as the weather makes it a lovely place, other downsides counterbalance it and that it's not the paradise on earth people expect it to be. Do you live by the day, feel carefree about the future, don't mind a low salary and a lot of financial distress if you get sunny weather all year long?

Or do you perhaps have the luck to work as a freelance for many clients that are Nordics based? In this case Bcn is a great option. Do you need to plan things ahead, need financial and material stability to maintain mental sanity, do you plan on settling and buying a house of your own, build a family and have savings? If you rely on doing this with a Spanish contract, either you don't move here at all or you move for a couple of years as RealTalk suggests and keep in mind you'll need to leave.

There you feel like you can do better in life, which is something Bcn can't give you. Best luck to you all! Jhon on Jul 21, : Is 50K per year a good salary for a single person? Anonymous on Jun 18, : Is 50K per year a good salary for a single person? That said, salaries are quite low here, as the cost of living is as well, and jobs, although getting better, can still be difficult to find.

We're both 30 yo and we're not planning to have children for the moment Anonymous on Apr 19, : Hello JV Thought I'd chime in on your questions. I love Barcelona and Spain in general. Over the past two years Barcelona and most of Spain has become very dangerous because of many migrants being allowed to stay in Barcelona.

Riots and protests are frequent, that's a shame. I lived in Barcelona for almost 14 years as a retired foreigner but I left in November Muggings and murders are frequent these days in beautiful Barcelona, sadly. I wouldn't recommend it honestly. Stay out of the plaza at night even though it's normally crowded due to abductions and armed robberies. Anything South of the city is dangerous day or night. Dress down don't wear Ray Ban sunglasses or expensive jewelry avoid anyone that stops you on the street to chit chat.

Eat where the locals normally eat and avoid touristy restaurants if possible. Hope this helped some have a safe trip. Is it safe? Are there areas to seek or avoid?

To the rest of you on here who don't have a clue figure this out. Look at how rapidly the Euro is declining and how many expats are pulling the pin getting out of Barcelona selling everything. That's a very good indication of the failing Euro.

Spainards are in it to fleece money from foreigners no doubt. When Brexit finishes with the Eurozone it'll cease and desist. No money no honey no euro valuation.

People in Barcelona are jerks towards foreigners, that's a given. Asking what's a good salary is ideotic too especially since the Euro is so volitale,DUH!!!!! Realtalk on Feb 20, : Would the dum dums who keep posting about their obvious decent salary pleas go off-load their insecurities elsewhere! Barcelona is shit for the long-term and ok for years max.

Locals aren't too friendly as they see you as a cause of the cities many economical problems. Salaries are awful, work hours long, rent is super high, apartments are cold as hell in winter time. Good jobs are hard to come by and there is a surplus of MBA studenty and people with masters willing to work way below their usual fee demands.

The foo and weather is good but thats about it, these locals are so greedy. Don't believe me? My advise is, come for a year or two and then go somewhere better for serious things like pensions, salaries, house prices that make sense etc. And oh yeah I forgot to mention the insane amount of theft here.
