MADRID has trumped Barcelona as the best place to live in Spain.
Spain’s capital came in 16th place in elite magazine Monocle’s annual list of 25 ‘most liveable’ cities.
Eight places further back, Barcelona just squeezed into the top 25.
Meanwhile Tokyo in Japan and Vienna in Austria were named the ‘most liveable’ cities in the world.
Last year’s winner Copenhagen fell from top spot to tenth in the rankings, while three German cities (Hamburg, Munich and Berlin) makes the European country the most represented on the list.
There was not such good news for the Brits though, as all UK cities were overlooked.
