Madrid
Located in the center of the country, the capital of Spain for over 500 years is still the country's hub of almost every aspect of life. The culture and history resonate through each neighborhood while modern infrastructure offers every convenience imaginable. The people are proud, spirited and very open-minded and attending the theater, museums and the ballet are part of the norm. Beautiful expansive parks abound as do elegant avenues, palaces and lively plazas. Bars, clubs and flamenco halls offer no shortage of nightlife opportunities. Remote workers have a good selection of cafes and coworking spaces to work from and given the city's size, it's not difficult to meet other people. The cost of living is slightly higher than other parts of Spain but it allows you to live in one of Europe's great cities.
