MANDATORY REFLECTOR JACKETS IN CAR??

by JERSEYFRESH1

Brushing up on driving in spain. Renting a car. Read that it is mandatory to have a reflector jacket in your car, in case of break down and need to pull off road. Also read that police can stop a car to look for a reflector jacket in car and fine if not. Do the car rentals include this somewhere in the car??
glove compartment?? Or should I buy a reflector jacket and pack and bring with me?? leaving in 1 week help!.

Yes it's mandatory and you can be fined if you do not have it handy somewhere inside the car (not in the trunk, you must be able to access and wear it before leaving the car).

I always had these provided when I rented cars in Spain, sometimes they give you the jacket with the car documents/keys, sometimes it's already on the car. Check it when you get your car.

If for some reason they do not provide it, you can buy very cheap ones in any gas station- I would not worry about bringing one with you

Thanks for the prompt reply. I think I will purchase two more when I get
there for my children and now I know to expect them to provide or know to ask
where it is in the car.

Travel Tips for Marbella

" A Way of Life"

by venteeocho

Marbella's motto is "A Way of Life" and, certainly, this luxurious resort town seems to have it all and is, once again, rising to the fore as a favourite location with the rich and famous, as well as more ordinary folk who are willing to pay just a little bit extra for southern Spain's answer to St Tropez.

Not too long ago, Marbella sharpened its image still more thanks to a considerable investment initiated by the town's colourful and controversial late mayor, Jesus Gil which resulted in a massive landscaping drive.

But Marbella has a down to earth side as well, an air of individuality which can be best appreciated by exploring back streets in the old part of town. One of the prettiest places is the fabled 'Orange Square' which is located just off the main street in the older district and is also home to the 16th century town hall and tourist office where you can pick up a detailed map and visitor information.

Back to Orange Square, or "La Plaza de los Naranjos", as it is called in Spanish, expect to meet with stately buildings, small shops, art galleries, bars and bistros and is a hub of activity day and night. And, depending on the time of year, the colours here can be vibrant, with the trees and exotic tropical plants set against a backdrop of dazzling white buildings and a deep blue sky. Be sure to explore the honeycomb of surrounding narrow streets where homes and shops intermingle to create the atmosphere of a small village, rather than a cosmopolitan town. There are numerous excellent restaurants to choose from, ranging from those specialising in the predictably pricey exclusive cordon bleu to the gritty individuality of a backstreet Spanish bar where the Serrano ham is gently cured by tobacco smoke and the tapas are both tasty and filling.

Back towards the coast is the La Alameda park where you can book your personal horse and carriage to travel in style or, if you prefer, stroll on towards the sea along the Avenida del Mar. This is arguably one of the most delightful promenades on the costa, flanked by classy restaurants and bars and mercifully free of concrete skyscrapers, glass bottom boat trips, imported shells and I love .... T. Shirts that are fast bringing a sameness to coastal resorts, whether they be in Pathos, Cyprus or Portimao, Portugal.

From Guadalalmina to Cabopino, the Marbella coastline stretches along some 26 kilometres of sunny beaches bathed by the Mediterranean and where you can enjoy traditional fish and seafood favourites like sardines on a spit, fried fish and the incomparable paella. There are also two large parks in Marbella which provide some welcome shade to spend some time with a book. The amphitheatre at Constitution Park (once the garden of a private residence) is frequently used for concerts and plays in the summer. Casinos, clubs and just about every sporting activity under the sun, few places can match Marbella for world class tennis, sailing and golf. There are also three pleasure craft harbours here.

Our Lady of Major Sorrow is in this Picture.

by Waalewiener

This is what the writing said.
Our Lady of Major Sorrow is the work of Jose Duenas -Rosales,of Malaga.
It was blessed on the 10 th of February in 1966 and it replaces a former sculpture dated early XIX th century.I was donated by Mrs Araceli Lopez Roldan in 1960.
It originated at the Church of the Capuchin Friars of Cordoba.
This work now presides over the board room
of the Brotherhood on the first floor.

Be Prepared

by ricky52

A small first aid kit is very useful. Little injuries like this one can be easily sorted out.
3 days after my return from Marbella, my right arm had gone septic, just because of an untreated wound on my elbow. Keziah's little injury had her all upset.

Puerto Banus updates .....

by Carmela71 about Closing hours

Bars are to close two hours earlier. (written on 02/12/2002)

The Puerto Banus council has synchronized the closing time of bars in Puerto Banus with the rest of Spain.

The old closing times were 5 on week days and 6 on weekends but after the new law was enforced the time has moved back to 3 on week days and 4 on weekends.

Bar owners have protested against the new times but the council’s decision was unaffected. Disco closing time will remain unaffected, which it is 6 on week days and 7 on weekends.

This is likely to damage all businesses in the port.

Restaurants in old town - En casco antiguo

by spanishguy

I have never eaten at old town, but I have to say that there are lots of restaurants looking very good, like for example the one in my picture. There are mainly restaurants with local and international food but there are also some cheap restaurants as burguers and pizzas.

Nunca he comido en el casco antiguo, pero debo decir que hay muchos restaurantes con buen aspecto aquí, como el de la foto. Principalmente los restaurantes son de cocina local e internacional, pero también hay algunas hamburgueserías y pizzerías baratos.
