Barcelona preview

Spain

Spain is an expat hot spot and Barcelona in particular is home to expats from all over the world. As well as plenty of sports, social and special interest clubs, you´ll find chapters of international clubs. Most clubs organise a variety of activities and pastimes (everything from chess to adventure sports to dinner-and-dancing).

Some clubs have their own facilities like libraries, clubhouses, and bars. Annual membership fees vary from €10 to €100, and some offer daily, weekly and monthly membership for visitors. Not only are these clubs the best way to indulge in your favorite leisure activity or valuable business networking, they are also a rich resource of recommendations for services, things to do, and the ´inside scoop´ on your neighborhood. Learn from the people who have ´been there done that´ (often the hard way).
