Ranking of the Rudest and Most Educated Cities in Spain According to Preply Survey

Spain is one of the favorite destinations for tourists. Only in 2022, 67.44 million foreign visitors visited our country. However, due to the geographical variety of our country, we can find very different people at one end of the national territory and another.

There are even cities and regions that have a reputation for being more or less pleasant or more or less hospitable. In this sense, the Preply platform has developed a survey asking the inhabitants of different Spanish cities to try to elaborate a ranking of the more or less educated cities in the country.

The methodology followed was to interview more than 1,500 residents of 19 Spanish areas to ask them how often they encounter rude behavior. Among these behaviors were: being on the phone all the time in public, not letting other cars pass when there is traffic, being noisy in public, speaking on the loudspeaker in public or not welcoming strangers.

After the results, they ordered the most and least educated cities in Spain on a scale from 1 to 10. Among the rudest are Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Granada, Alicante-Elche, San Sebastián or Bilbao. Among the most educated, Vigo, A Coruña, Valencia, Murcia-Orihuela and Oviedo-Gijón-Avilés.

However, the conclusions they drew were not so drastic. “Although the conclusions show that some cities are more rude than others, Spaniards are quite polite people in public,” the authors emphasize.

These are the 10 rudest cities, according to Preply:

  1. Santa Cruz of Tenerife
  2. Granada
  3. Alicante-Elche
  4. Saint Sebastian
  5. Bilbao
  6. Palma de Mallorca
  7. Barcelona

This study also addressed whether in these localities they considered that the residents were more or less educated than the tourists, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Cádiz, they affirmed that the locals, while in Palma and Valladolid they assured that the visitors.

In addition, as a gesture of good manners, in the preply studio the percentage of tip left in each city was analyzed, being Valladolid the most generous, where the tip reaches 10.18% of the amount.
