Competition between the Provinces in Spain is nothing new, but a recent survey by Electomania shows it’s reached a whole different level.
The Balearics are the 7th highest rated province in Spain, but it seems that the people of Cuenca don’t like the Islands very much, whereas Tarragona loves them.
Each territory in Spain was asked to rate the others for the survey.
The Balearics scored 6.5; Asturias got 9.0; Catalonia and Valencia were rated 7.8 in Tarragona, 7.3 in Girona and Castellón and above 7 in Barcelona.
The Islands were rated lowest in the Plateau with a 4.5 from Cuenca and a 4.8 from Pacenses and Ciudad Real. Valladolid also gave the Balearics a low rating of 4.9.
But the Balearic Islands got its own back with its assessments of the other Provinces and those in the Southeast of the country did not fare well.
Murcia scored to 2.4. Ceuta and Melilla got just above 3 and Tarragona got a 4.6.
Valencia is a Balearic favorite and the Basque Country scored well too, apart from Álava. Guipuzkoa and Vizcaya.
Barcelona scored 6.4; Granada and Malaga got just over 6 and Madrid got 5.7.
Salamanca in Castile and Leon; Huesca in Aragon, and Extremadura scraped to 5; Galicia, Rioja and Navarra scored an average of 4 and the Balearics voted Cuenca as the worst Province.
