Sabadell is currently the co-capital of the Vallès Occidental region, along with Terrassa and the fifth most populous municipality in Catalonia, with 216,520 inhabitants according to INE 2020 figures.
Since the 60’s and 70’s the population of the city has grown considerably, from about 100,000 inhabitants to more than 200,000 that we have mentioned. Thanks to this increase, the city has grown and improved in many other ways as well.

As the fifth most populous municipality in Catalonia, Sabadell enjoys all the necessary services to make its population live in it as comfortably as possible.

The near future of the city of Sabadell
Sabadell intends to take on the challenges of the future with a series of projects that refer to new information and communication technologies. “Gran Via Digital” aims to encourage the installation of companies linked to new technologies; the “Health Park” will be a macro-center for training and research in medicine and pharmacy; the “City of Music” will offer the city new facilities, such as a conference space, a new theater, a new music school and a new hotel.
Sabadell is a city without roundabouts, which affects mobility, as much of the traffic has to go through internal roads. It is possible that the construction of the planned Ronda Oest and Ronda del Ripoll could alleviate this situation, as well as the improvement of the railway network that could be used to balance the traffic problem.
As you can see … in Sabadell there is everything without having to move! And for those who want to be in Barcelona in a few minutes.
