Here at Remoters, we love coworking. Your mileage may vary, but we think coworking offers good value for remoter productivity. We also love Barcelona, and so do nomads. This Spanish city ranks at number two on Nomad List and there is no shortage of coworking spaces in Barcelona.
So how do you choose? Décor, location, theme, and amenities may help sway you, but for remoters, flexibility is key. Coworking spaces often cater to locals and remoters that plan to be in the location for a longer period of time, with monthly memberships, application processes, and even deposits—which don’t always suit location independent remoters on the go. Here’s a round up of great coworking spaces in Barcelona well suited to digital nomad remoters:
