Cost of living in Barcelona

We're considering moving to Barcelona this year with my family. When we get there, we’ll want to live in a large 3-bedroom apartment or house in a good (safe, convenient) area, and send my daughter to an international school. Of course we’ll have mobile phones, high speed internet, go out to eat 4-5 times a month, basic utilities, have a car, travel around Europe and back to Mexico 2-3 times a year, and still save a respectable amount of money each month.

Can anyone give me any rough ranges of the kind of salary (in Euros/per year) that I’ll need to make to live this lifestyle in Barcelona?

Well, in keeping with the lower cost of living out of the cities, the average salary in Spain is said to ber in the region of €13k. That aint going to get you too far I'm afraid, especially as the cost of living in the cities is a lot lot higher than in rural areas. Here, South of Valencia I estimate the cost of living is about 30% cheaper then in the UK although I understand city living can be as expensive as in the UK
