On the road


- By car:
Do not park on forbidden areas!
- Do not leave valuable things or documents inside the car. Especially in the big cities it is better to check in first in your hotel!
- Dress yourself discreet when you visit churches or monasteries. The Spanish do wear bathclothes only on the beach.


Daily life


- Money
Banks open only in the morning (8.30 a.m. to 2.00 p.m.). Money cashiers are very often.  The main credit cards are accepted in many hotels, restaurants, stores and shops.
- Post
Postboxes are yellow and have the typical horn logo. Stamps can be bought in the post office, tobacco and newspaper shops.
- Have in mind the typical opening hours in Spain. Especially during the hot summer months many shops close between 1.30 and 5.30 p.m. - time for a "Siesta". Therefor they open a bit longer on the evening!
