    5 Quirky Facts

    1. There Be Pirates
      It’s believed the first settlements in the area date back to around 3,000BC. Romans briefly settled but it was the Moors that really made themselves at home. They hung around until 1245 when King James I of Aragon reconquered the area. The first mention of ‘Benidorm’ appeared in 1325 and for the next few centuries the small fishing village was a regular target for Barbary pirates.
    2. Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Benidorm Bikini
      Benidorm’s tourist trade goes back as far as 1925 when the first hotels were built and the port extended. In 1952 the fishing industry went into decline so in a bid to save the village, the Mayor Pedro Zargoza visited the dictator General Franco to ask him legalise bikinis. The round trip took him 8 hours on his small motorbike. But it was worth the trip, Franco said yes, and despite the church threatening to excommunicate him, Zargoza’s vision brought the holiday makers rolling in.
    3. The Only Way is Up
      Bikinis weren’t the Mayor’s only big idea. He realised that people wanted to be near the beach and see it from their hotel, so he was responsible for the town’s layout and first skyscrapers. Today the former fishing village welcomes over 1,000,000 visitors a year and is second only to Milan and London for the most skyscrapers in Europe. The Gran Hotel Bali stands at an impressive 186 metres tall.
    4. They Grow Up So Fast
      Benidorm is Spain’s 14th largest city. However due to the seasonal nature of the resort numbers can fluctuate. Also, the official population invariably is different to the actual number of residents due to the large amount of migrant workers on short term contracts. The population is certainly above 100,000 and still growing.
    5. Cheers!
      While paella is widely known and enjoyed by tourists, one thing that remains predominantly enjoyed by the locals is horchata. A hot drink made from crushed nuts, sugar and water, it’s believed the drink was first brought to Spain by the Moors but today you’ll find the locals sipping it in cafes, bars and ice cream shops. Cheers!

    Top Attractions

    Playa de Poniente
    5 kilometres of stunning, golden sand, Benidorm’s beaches are what makes the location so special. There are watersports, beach bars, restaurants, shops, and of course sunshine!

    Benidorm Island
    According to legend, the island was created by an angry, heartbroken giant who ripped the top off the mountain that towers above the resort and threw it into the sea. Thanks to his heartbreak, tourists can now take boat trips to this nature reserve for snorkelling and picnics.

    Calle Santo Domingo
    Known as Tapas Alley, it’s foodie heaven. A single road lined with great eateries serving delicious tapas and pinchos (open baguettes topped with local flavours). Definitely one to visit for those moving to Benidorm.

    Old Town
    As simple and wonderful as that. It’s the oldest part of Benidorm full of lovely shops, bars and cafes. Essentially it’s Benidorm without the flashy suit and just a little bit slower.

    Magic Natura
    One of Spain’s biggest theme parks, it’s divided into sections so there’s something for everyone, a zoo, water park, rides, slides, shops. An adventurous day out for the whole family.

    Benidorm Palace
    The No.1 night-time destination, this superb venue brings a touch of Las Vegas to Benidorm. Huge shows, lavish costumes, big sets, a truly great night out.

    Golfists, grass cutters and near pros can find a huge array of courses to suit every ability. Golf really doesn’t get better than playing in the sunshine on these absolutely immaculate courses.

    Balcon del Mediterraneo
    Cameras at the ready, this excellent location, on the site of a former castle is one of Benidorm’s most instantly recognisable sites offering incredible views and photo ops.

    Barcelona Removals

    The Spanish city of Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, a region in the North-eastern corner of the country, and is a renowned ‘smart city’, due to its many industries and outlets. Barcelona hosted the 1992 Summer Olympic games and is ranked as Europe’s fourth best city for business and economy growth. Barcelona supposedly got its name from the Carthaginian general Hamilcar Barca, who founded the city in 3rd century BC. In 2011, Barcelona was the 20th most visited city in the world, and 5th most visited city in Europe. The city is full of historical and cultural sites of interest, including 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, 519 hotels, 35 of which are 5 star, and multiple beaches. FC Barcelona (or Barça) is one of the best know sports teams in the world, being the second richest football club in existence. The team has won 72 national trophies, 17 continental prizes, five Champions League trophies and three FIFA Club World Cups. FC Barcelona also has professional teams in other sports, such as basketball, handball, roller hockey, ice hockey and futsal. Barcelona itself is served by El Prat Airport, the second largest airport in Spain, and the largest on the Mediterranean coast. The Port of Barcelona is over 2000 years old, and is of great commercial importance, connecting the city with many different locations around the globe, and providing access to many different industries and goods. The central area of the Port houses a multiplex cinema, Europe’s largest aquarium (containing 8,000 fish, 11 sharks and 6 million litres of sea water) and a shopping mall. The view of the Port from Montjuïc, a hill in the city, is popular with visitors, and there is the option to take a cable car from the ferry station to the castle in Montjuïc.

    Barcelona Removals

    Barcelona had no beaches until the 1992 Olympics, whereas nowadays there are 7 blue beaches along the city’s coastline. Gustave Eiffel originally planned for the Eiffel Tower to be in Barcelona, but Spain rejected the architect’s project, thinking it was too ‘radical’ and wouldn’t ‘fit with the city’s aesthetics’. Opened in 2007, Iccebarcelona is the world’s first ice bar, and is located on the beach. The city loves its food, and has more than 20 Michelin-starred restaurants, most of which specialise in Catalan cuisine. Barcelona’s 180km of cycle lanes make the city one of the most bike friendly cities in the world. You can navigate through Barcelona easily using these cycles lanes, which is heavily advised due to the number of people driving through the city centre. One of the most spectacular sites in Barcelona is the Palau de la Música Catalana, a beautifully designed musical hall created by architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. One of the most popular dishes in the whole of Barcelona is the world-famous Esqueixada salad, made with raw cod, romesco sauce, tomatoes, onions and olives. You can’t be in Barcelona and not try the region’s take on Paella, a dish from the 19th century that consists of white rice, beans and seasoning. The dish is traditionally made with mussels, lobster, shrimp and other seafood, but other alternatives are available such as chicken and chorizo, chicken and rabbit or vegetable Paella. Barcelona is known for having lovely weather, and relaxing beaches within walking distance of the city centre. It is a great city for those looking to relocate from the UK, or for those wanting a holiday home in an idyllic location.
