AT a time of financial uncertainty, innovation is a valuable attribute in any business or city.
New research has revealed that Spain is home to the second most innovative city in the world: Barcelona.
In an analysis of over 50 cities across the globe, the study by Ambr Eyewear considers employment, well-being, connectivity, creativity and education.
Barcelona came in second in the study, trumped only by Paris, France.
Home to the Sagrada Familia cathedral and gorgeous Artigas Gardens, it has been a successful year for the Catalan city.
Researchers ranked Barcelona one of the ten most cultural cities in the world this month thanks to its architectural flare.
And the city’s trendy Esquerra de l’Eixample neighbourhood was voted the coolest in the world, according to Time Out’s annual survey.
Esquerra de l’Eixample was described as having ‘incredible community spirit’ in 2020, thanks to dance parties on neighbouring balconies during lockdown.
