YOU can buy an entire village in rural Galicia for under €200,000; but that is only just enough to get you a parking spot in Madrid.

Spain’s most expensive space – a cool €150,000 – can be found in the capital’s exclusive Salamanca district on Calle Hermosilla.

In Barcelona, the priciest spot is €90,000 in the Travesia de Gracia zone.

The average parking space in Madrid costs €31,490 while Barca streaks ahead with a €44,073 price-tag on average.

London is still the most expensive place to park in Europe – last year, a parking space sold for €544,670 – but that’s nothing compared to the USA. A Manhattan parking space has sold for more €885,000 ($1 million) and slots regularly sell for more than €110,000 in San Francisco.

Alarmingly, in New York, a parking spot can cost more than an apartment but, of course, space there is very limited.
