Telephone boxes: they work either with coins or cards which can be bought in estancos (tobacconists which also sell stamps and phone cards).

The GSM technology is used in Spain. This technology is not compatible with that of some other countries, as is the case with the USA and Japan. If the system of technology used by your mobile phone is compatible with that of Spain, then you need to contact an operator in your country to see if it is necessary for them to activate your international service. Once you are in our region do not forget that in order to phone abroad you have to dial 00 (the international code from Spain) + code of the country of destination + telephone number.
Letters, telegrams or faxes
In order to send a letter you have to use the stamps which can be bought in estancos (tobacconists which also sell stamps and phone cards). Once the letter is ready to be sent, post it in any of the yellow post boxes which are found in the streets everywhere. If you wish to do so you can also go to the General Post Office (Oficina de Correos) which has branches in all the cities and towns of our region, where you can buy stamps, post letters, and where they can advise you on any doubt which you may have in this respect.
In order to send telegrams or faxes it is best to head directly for the General Post Office
