In August 2022, the Spanish real estate portal known as Idealista made a list of the 10 most expensive streets in Spain. They based their study on the absolute price of all the properties that were for sale or for rental in a street, only considering those streets that had more than 10 adverts. In the following lines, we will go through the top three most expensive streets in Spain.
The most expensive street in Spain can be found in Benahavís, in the province of Málaga, Andalusia. It is also considered as the most exclusive estate in Europe, which was to be expected. This luxurious estate hosts a beautiful green forest inhabited by white mansions with more than 10 000 square metres. They have a variety of luxury services as well, like a golf course, an equestrian centre, a heliport, and even a private lake.
Some of the features of La Zagaleta that charm the potential buyers are the calm and the sense of intimacy one can find there. Moreover, it is certainly alluring that it lies surrounded by nature, with spectacular views to the Mediterranean mountains. According to the report made by Idealista, the owners of these properties ask for up to almost 10 million euros for the purchase of one of these mansions.
The picturesque municipality of Calviá, in Mallorca, is home to the second most expensive street in Spain. Indeed, the street of Sant Carles displays all its Balearic beauty. Lovely white houses spread at the feet of the Mediterranean Sea, and they create a beautiful contrast with the green pine forests. The peacefulness one can enjoy in the area, as well as its great climate and the beaches and coves nearby, make its properties worth about nine and a half million euros.
The capital of Spain hosts the third of the most expensive streets in Spain. More precisely, it lies in the neighbourhood of La Moraleja in Alcobendas, which is fairly known for its elevated prices. At first sight, this street might seem utterly normal. However, the street of Camino Sur is a jewel for different reasons, like the quiet area where it rests, the fact that it is fairly close to the city centre… And, above all, the impressive houses rising over it. The thing is, if you fall in love with it, you should be able to pay about eight million euros for a property.
On the flip side, when it comes to the cheapest places to live in Spain, both Tecnicasa and the Colegio de Registradores agree on the cheapest city in regards to the price of the square metre. We are talking about Talavera de la Reina in Castile-La Mancha, more specifically the area of El Pilar-La Estación, where the square metre revolves around 363 euros. Its proximity to the train station and the city centre, which can be reached in 15 minutes by foot, make it such a great area for those interested in living in a quiet city near Madrid and Toledo. According to their reports, the neighbourhood of Carrús in Elche is the second cheapest place to live in Spain.
