Sant Cugat del Vallès is the second Spanish municipality with the highest income per capita. This means that its inhabitants have significantly higher income than many other communities in the capital. To be exact, according to the Ministry of Finance, every resident registered in the municipality of Vallès Occidental in 2015 declared an average earnings of 45,900 euros gross (35,000 net). This is the second richest Catalan town after Matadepera.
As a result of the residents' high earnings, Sant Cugat is, therefore, a very safe city to live in. This is because of the locals' active lifestyle and spending most of their time outdoors. There are many green areas such as Pollancreda Park and the town has on average one tree for every 1.4 inhabitants.
The change in family residence doesn't have to affect your life as Sant Cugat offers many private and public schools. All stages of schooling are amply covered in the municipality, while Barcelona's universities are within walking distance. Similarly, health care is of high quality with modern, well-appointed clinics.
The old town of Sant Cugat provides an enriching cultural experience through different samples of local heritage, such as the famous Benedictino Monastery. This is practically a unique venue in Barcelona that started getting built from the late stages of the Roman Empire through to the late Middle Ages. In short, this monastery oozes with history and charm.
Indeed, luxury is the hallmark of some of the properties that are available to buy or rent in Sant Cugat. Whether you are looking for apartments or single-family houses, the properties on offer are of high-quality finishes.
