Most day-to-day costs are much cheaper in Portugal than Spain, however, it’s worth considering where you plan to live which can have a very large impact on your cost of living. 

On average Spain is 12% more expensive than Portugal for living costs such as food, travel and housing.

Major cities such as Faro, Porto, and Lisbon can make a big difference to your costs, particularly for housing. Lisbon house prices have grown exponentially over the past 10 years and show no signs of slowing.
