Practical Information

Medical Care

If you have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) issued by an EU-member state, you can use your EHIC to access the public healthcare in Spain. You can use your EHIC to get any required medical treatment (as determined by a doctor) through the public system at a reduced cost. It does not give access to private healthcare. Spain has bi-lateral agreements with some countries that allow their citizens having free medical treatments while their stay in Spain. Everyone else needs to hold a heatlh insurance. In a serious, life-threatening emergency, call the pan-European number 112 free of charge from any mobile phone or landline. The Spanish word for A&E or ER is Urgencias.


You can take a prescription to any pharmacy (farmacia). A green cross indicates the location of the pharmacies on the street. Pharmacies are usually open Monday to Saturdays from 9:30h to 21:00h. Information about the nearest 24-hour pharmacy (farmacia de guardia) can be found on the Pharmacy’s door.

Public Transport

You can buy a T-10 ticket in any metro station. With the integrated T-10 ticket you can transfer up to three times (including train, metro, bus and tram) during the same trip, within one hour and a half. At the beginning of your trip, please, stamp your ticket as many times as people are travelling with you.
