Due to its great worldwide success, it has been rated as one of the best Spanish series of 2019. It chronicles the life of Macarena, a young woman who unknowingly committed tax fraud and was sentenced to years in prison, where she and her family will embark on many adventures.

La Casa de Papel

Its plot is a heist. Yes, as in many other series and movies. But in this case, it also has a plot twist. Instead of entering the bank, the thieves broke into Spain’s Fábrica Nacional de la Moneda y Timbre. That is, the building in charge of manufacturing banknotes and coins. You’ve probably heard of this Netflix series in Spanish as it has become known worldwide.

If you like teen series, you can’t miss it. The story it´s about working-class teenagers attending a private Spanish school with very wealthy students, which leads, after several events, to a murder. It consists of 5 seasons that explore concepts and themes related to teen drama.

The dialogue in Spanish has a good rhythm and immerses you in the spoken language of teenagers. Many young people identify with their characters, which makes the series much easier to understand.

Allí abajo

We can’t exclude comedy from this list. The plot of this series touches on the cultural differences within Spain and the dialect varieties in the country.
