5 Advantages of living in Terrassa

Terrassa, just like other municipalities that are located around Barcelona, ​​has become a good option for all those who are tired of the hustle and bustle of this great city and decide to search for a house in a more relaxing environment. However, there are many other factors that can influence this decision. So if you are also thinking of moving away from Barcelona, we will explain five reasons why you should consider taking up residence in this location.

1. Excellent connections

Terrassa is located only 37.5 kilometres from Barcelona and offers a variety of transportation systems that connect with the centre of Barcelona. Therefore, if your job is located in the centre of the city, you can reach your workplace within 45 minutes. You can choose to travel in your own vehicle or, alternatively, make use of the commuter rail and intercity bus.

2. Cheaper properties

At the moment, house prices per square metre in Barcelona are much more expensive. So much so that, in the historical part of the city, prices reach around € 3,500. But in Terrassa, they range around € 2,000, which is almost half. You can, therefore, choose to find a house with similar features at a lower price and take advantage of a bigger property with many amenities.

3. No more searching for a parking space

Thanks to the property boom that took place a few decades ago in Terrassa, this town now benefits from recently built homes. What's more, the vast majority of these homes have their own garages. This will allow you to park your car in a secure place whenever you get home and, if one day you want to park in the street, you will easily find space without much cost to you.

4. Plenty of tranquility as well as many leisure options

Buying a home in Terrassa goes hand in hand with tranquility and relaxation. However, this does not mean that Terrassa has no events or places to go to in order to enjoy a nice dinner and drinks with your partner or friends. In fact, every year, this town hosts a popular jazz festival with more than 30 years of history.

5. Local services and amenities

Terrassa has a variety of public and private hospitals as well as educational centres. Therefore, regardless of which service you require, you will always be located close to all the facilities that you need.
