Family Resources

Many people have found southern Spain to be an excellent place to start a family and raise children. Children are highly esteemed in Spanish culture and generally welcomed in restaurants and all kinds of events. As they say in Spain, "Cada niño nace con un bar de pan debajo del brazo" - or "Every child is born with a bar of bread under its arm". This is a way of saying that a child is good fortune.



While the attitude towards children and family life in general is positively welcoming and relaxed however, parents do need a wide variety of information that is often hard to come by.
