According to the Sunday Times, Palma is the best city to live in the world 2015. Below is an extract from the article.
“Our winner is Palma. We believe it has everything” said the newspaper. Although not explaining the exact criteria when making its choice, it does highlight some of the elements that make Ciutat de Mallorca attractive to the British, including the climate, the beauty of the old town , gastronomy and beaches.
“It ‘s a pocket-sized city that has it all on a beautiful island ”
Another argument is that the city is easily accessed for a Brit who wants to live abroad. The short distances across the island are a plus to living in Mallorca emphasising that Palma is a ten minute drive from the airport and throughout the year there are cheap flights.
Apart from Palma , Sunday includes three other Spanish cities in their top 50: Barcelona ; Ojén north of Marbella, and Zahara on the coast of Cadiz.
In the list of the 50 best cities to live in, the Mallorquin capital has also been located ahead of destinations such as Berlin , Honolulu, Miami , Rome, Florence , Paris, Vienna , Stockholm , Copenhagen , Rio de Janeiro and Sydney.
