Top position for Gijón in the Quality of Life Ranking
Gijón is one of the best cities to live in Spain. Pamplona, Bilbao and Gijón are the cities that offer the highest quality of life according to an OCU (Users and Consumers Organisation) survey.
The most important criterion is that of security of the public from crime in order to determine the quality of life in a city. Next are criteria such as work, housing, health care, mobility and transportation. The less important criteria are trade, services, urban landscape and historic heritage as stated by the OCU. Pamplona is at the top of the quality of life ranking among Spanish cities. The survey was carried out by the OCU in collaboration with the consumers associations that make up the group Euroconsumers. Bilbao and Gijón are next at the top of the list. From the answers to the OCU survey we can gather that: * Citizens from Albacete, Badajoz, Murcia and Palma de Mallorca value the size of their homes as something positive. * Health care is considered to be good in Pamplona. People from Gijón are satisfied with their health care centres and people from Santander have a good opinion about their hospitals and specialist centres. * As regards transportation and mobility, we conclude that public transport is highly valued in Badajoz while in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria people put a high value to easily driving and parking during weekends.
