Another beautiful city in Spain is right at the fingers tips of any remote worker looking for a quiet and scenic coliving experience. Zaragoza is placed in the northeast of Spain, halfway between Madrid and Barcelona - a perfect stopping off point on your nomadic travels.
Zaragoza is a great city for shopping, as well as enjoying a lively nightlife with some excellent cuisine. It's a must to try the local Aragonese cuisine, which features a lot of fresh produce that grows in the area. Such as haricot beans, onions, asparagus, plums, and peaches. Can you just taste them now? And when you fancy a break from remote working, you can get yourself on a highly visited Zaragoza Olive Oil Tour, and then finish off your night with a tasty tapas tour.
Even as the fifth biggest city in Spain, it entertains a lot fewer tourists meaning fewer crowds to contend with. In fact, you're more likely to meet Spanish locals as the city is host to the famous baroque Nuestra Señora del Pilar basilica, a famous pilgrimage site with a shrine to the Virgin Mary, which sits amongst other incredible Islamic and Gothic architecture buildings. It is truly a place of great beauty.
In October, Zaragoza hosts the festival of Fiestas del Pilar for 10 days, and with the temperatures settling around the 25-30 degrees mark, it's an excellent time to experience coliving in the city. Getting around couldn't be easier either, with most of the city center accessible by foot. Similar to other Spanish cities, Zaragoza has a well-connected Tram and Bus system. The Internet is satisfactory, and the city contains a number of Internet cafes if you wish to work remotely outside of the coliving house. All in all a quieter, Spanish experience but no less good.
