Spain has always attracted tourists for its wonderful cities, warm weather, and beautiful beaches and landscapes. US travelers have been very interested in this country and American Airlines recently reinstated seasonal flights to Madrid and Barcelona

For those who haven’t decided yet which city to visit this summer, this new ranking might help them decide and adjust their budget. A recent report published by Rastreator—an insurance agency headquartered in Madrid— published a list of the cheapest and most expensive cities in Spain.

The study analyzed recent prices and considered a week’s stay —7 days and 6 nights— in a hotel downtown and relevant services and average consumption for two people in the city, including prices for coffee, the average price for a restaurant meal, a beer, car rental, and gas price.

Prices have increased considerably this year, on average 1 week of vacation in Spain during August costs 1,464 euros —around 1,530 dollars—, 24% more than in 2021.

Madrid, the capital, ranked 7th place among the 15 destinations analyzed, with an average of 1,340 euros per week. Barcelona —Spain’s most popular destination among international visitors— ranked as the 4th most expensive destination with a weekly vacation cost of 1,873 euros. 

These are the results of the top 3 cheapest and most expensive destinations in Spain:
