Post Office in Spain

 

Post offices in Spain are called Correos (see pic above). They can be recognised by the yellow sign with a white post horn. Post boxes are yellow and located in the street. You will also find post boxes in hotels and some shops. You can purchase postage stamps from the post office or from a tobacconist (Estanco).
