News: Torrevieja named as Europe´s most multicultural city
The southern Costa Blanca city of Torrevieja enjoys a beautiful climate, with temperate and thankfully short winters, combined with long warm summers that stretch all the way from April through to November most years.
Originally a sea salt harvesting community, Torrevieja has developed over recent years into a bustling Spanish metropolis boasting vibrant streetside cafes, lively bars, and quality restaurants catering to all tastes.
Today, the south Valencian municipality is home to more than 100,000 residents, and the latest statistical data released recently by Eurostat, the European Commission´s official statistical office, names Torrevieja as Europe´s most multicultural city.
The percentage of residents living in Torrevieja born outside of Spain has reached a total of 46.7% - nearly half of the entire residential population; beating Brussels in Belgium in to second place, with a non-indigenous population of 44.4%.
Nationwide, the foreign-born population in Spain averages 12.7%, a testament to the accepting, warm, and welcoming nature of the Spanish people.
Torrevieja is a beautiful place to live, and with modern transport links served by two international airports (Alicante and Murcia-San Javier), it´s only two hours travel time from most north European destinations. Take a look at our property for sale in Torrevieja, just click here.
