In a press release sent to the press, the Porto City Council states that, “for compiling the list, the British newspaper used economic indicators such as the creation of new spaces and infrastructure, better maintenance of the connection of the city, promoting an attractive economic environment and maintaining a high quality of life in the city. “
“It were equally valued incentives for new enterprises, the existence of a highly educated population and the international promotion of the city“, explains the municipality.
The Spanish city of Barcelona came in 1st place in the same ranking and Lisbon 2.º.
In the same study, Porto is referenced in a second ranking.

Over the past decade the landscape of the overseas property market has changed vastly. After a turbulent 10 years it has finally found its feet and now is the time to look to the future.
It is no surprise to those of us living and working in the Algarve that the southern coast of Portugal is one such market which has overcome the difficult years to strongly bounce back and is now on the rise to a golden age of investment and a myriad property options.
To the investor it offers strong rental yields, to the holiday home owner it gives a fantastic getaway from the grind of everyday life and to the relocating expat offers a lifestyle envied by many.
The Algarve is one of Europe's most popular tourist destinations due to the clean beaches, the cool, unpolluted water, its rich culture and diversity and the fact that it is relatively cheap, safe and overwhelmingly welcoming.
With English spoken throughout the region the Algarve is a top pick for retirees wanting a laid back lifestyle filled with sun and great food and wine. It is also a great choice for golfers and boat lovers.
Don’t let your dream of owning or investing in the Algarve slip away, make your enquiry with us now and let us open the door to a world of opportunities here in sunny Portugal!
