Who doesn’t have a car? What with most of the population of Spain having a car, and the increase of traffic volume in tourist season, parking is very much an issue.
In many towns in Spain there are some crazy parking laws and restrictions.
For example, you can only park on one side of the street for half a month then the other side of the street for the other half of the month. As you can see this could get confusing and there are limited spaces.
In a recent survey it was discovered that it can take in up to 8 minutes to find a parking space in towns and more than double that time in large cities!
Purchasing your own private parking space or garage in Spain is the answer. There are many underground parking spaces for sale, some include a trastero (storage space). Or you could opt to purchase a lock up garage.
Prices vary when purchasing garages and parking spaces; dependant on the area you are looking to purchase a property in. On a larger scale, there are even whole car parks that can be purchased, securing you a parking space for life and a regular income!!!!!!
