A country that enjoys an almost perennially sunny climate, Spain is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations. Famous for its contributions to the worlds of art, sport, music and food, there’s no shortage of things to see and do in Spain.
Some of the most popular activities in Spain include heading to the beautiful beaches, visiting the country’s many museums and art galleries, playing a round of golf on the courses of Andalucía and the eastern coast and watching football – one of the nation’s favourite sports. The cuisine here is to die for, especially tapas (small meals that are spread over several courses) and paella, the national dish.
Police in Spain can give fines on the spot, although if a fine is paid within 20 days, there is a 15-day appeal window.
If you park in a blue parking zone “zona azul” or “zona O.R.A.”, between 8am and 8pm, you can only park for a maximum of two hours.
Tolls are levelled on most motorways. Payment is largely electronic, either with Telepiaje or Via T. Transmitters are needed to be fixed to your car’s windscreen and can be bought from banks or petrol suppliers.
