Where to buy stamps, bus tickets and telephone cards
In Spain the easiest way to buy stamps, bus/metro tickets and telephone cards are through the small shops known as "Estancos" (although the door sign says "Tabacos"). The "Estancos" also sell tobacco products and can be found on every street throughout the country. It is also possible to buy stamps in the post office and some paper shops and bus/metro tickets in most of the bus/metro stations.
