Unlike many of Spain's holiday hotspots, average property prices in Barcelona were up 9.2 per cent in the first quarter of this year, compared to the same period last year, according to Tinsa, Spain’s leading appraisal company. This is due in part to Barcelona’s unique appeal – a city of culture, world-famous architecture and gastronomic innovation – along with the renovated OneOcean Port Vell marina, a 148-berth hub with space for yachts up to 190 metres, that has helped to transform the harbour and the property market. 

For those looking to purchase in the city, Pedralbes is the go-to for politicians and footballers looking for luxury villas while the city centre's traditional lodgings with Gaudí-style touches and mosaic flooring, as well as pied-à-terres at the marina, start from about €2 million for a top-end pad. However it is Zona Alta, in the mountains overlooking the city centre and the location of our property of the month, that is increasingly coveted. At about €6,000 per square metre, this are is particularly in favour with those seeking lots of land as well as ex-pats keen to be close to the international schools nearby.
