An average price tag slightly over €4m makes Avinguda Rocaferrera the street with the most expensive housing in Catalonia. It is a street located in Sant Andreu de Llavaneres, a town of around 11,000 inhabitants in the Maresme area which does not even appear on the list of towns with the highest per capita income in Catalonia. Even so, according to the latest data from Idealista, this coastal town beats Barcelona, which until now was the city with the most expensive streets in Catalonia.
Last year it was the Avinguda Pedralbes, with houses costing €3m on average, and before the pandemic, in 2019, Avinguda Tibidabo. It must be said, however, that then the average was €5.8m.
The fact that this avenue has lost its position for the second year running also confirms that it is far from being, as it was, the second most expensive street in Spain to buy a house and, also, that Catalonia is once again out of the top ten. In fact, two years ago Catalonia appeared three times: the third with the houses on Avinguda Rocaferrera in Sant Andreu de Llavaneres. Now none appears and the ranking is led by the Balearic Islands: the street of the State where it is the most expensive to buy a home is Carrer Sant Carles in Calvià (Mallorca). The average stands, according to Idealista, at €7m.
Only €1,200 cheaper on average are the houses on Coto Zagaleta in Benahavis (Málaga), which led the ranking before the pandemic. In this case, back then its luxury villas would have set you back €6.7m, now up to €7m. The third and fourth place are also Malaga streets: Mozart Street (the most expensive last year) and Cascada de Camoján in Marbella, where housing costs on average between €5.2m and €5.4m.
Changes also in Madrid
Madrid does not appear in the list until the fifth position, a sign that the pandemic has also altered the value of some of the streets of the Spanish capital. Two years ago the street with the most expensive housing in Madrid was in La Moraleja, where a house on the Paseo de la Marquesa Viuda de Aldama cost an average of €6.3m last year, the third highest mark in Spain. This year it is the Paseo de los Lagos in Pozuelo de Alarcón which takes over, with average house prices of €5.2m.
