Valencia continues to attract a growing number of expats every year. Affordable living, quality healthcare, and spectacular weather are just some of the many reasons over 100,000 foreign residents call Valencia their home. InterNations, the world’s largest expat community with over 4.5 million members, ranked Valencia as the best city to live in 2022.
However, Valencia continuously ranks low in terms of job prospects, which is why there is an increasing number of self-employed ‘digital nomads’ and entrepreneurs living in the city. This has led to a number of coworking spaces popping up across the city, each offering communal working environments for people living here.
Coworking spaces are generally informal working environments where you can rent a desk with a good internet connection, grab a coffee and mingle with other like-minded individuals. Prices and facilities vary significantly across the different locations in Valencia, so here we will compare five of the best options.
