City tours, excursions and tickets in La Palma and surroundings

Moving around in Spain - transportation

Spain is a modern country with highly developed infrastructure. Here you can find practically all the possible means of transportation that tourists can use to travel within the country. The airplane is one of the fastest ways to travel. Every major city of Spain has an airport in it, but they are located on the outskirts. The airports have domestic flights, which allow you to reach the necessary cities in a short time. This is especially true for traveling to the islands. In addition, the price of a ticket for domestic flights is often cheaper than the cost of other alternative modes of transportation. There is also a railway network in Spain. You can find railway stations in every major city. However, the cost of tickets for this mode of transportation is quite expensive. It is thus recommended to plan routes in advance and purchase travel cards, as this will be economical. You can also save cost if you purchase a return ticket. The train wagons are very comfortable and convenient. Usually, all of them are provided with air conditioning and toilets. However, some not very popular routes are run by old European diesel trains. The cost of tickets for such trains is cheaper, but they are less comfortable. … Open

Economy roadmap of Spain

Machine-tool construction in Spain also makes a significant contribution to the economy. Most of its production is geared towards exportation. Thus, Spanish machines and industrial equipment are supplied to more than a hundred countries around the world. Over a century ago, metallurgical activity began to develop in Spain. The main assets are located in the northern regions where there are large deposits of iron ore and coal. Non-ferrous metallurgy is focused on the extraction of lead and zinc. One third of the world’s mercury is produced in Spain. Also, there is located the largest deposits of pyrite. The energy sector is directly dependent on imports. The amount of domestic oil can only meet 7% of the country’s needs. At the same time, the majority of Fuel and Energy Complex works on oil and gas (approximately 68%). This state of affairs gave the country an impetus for the development of wind power. Spain’s share of wind power is about 10% of the total world’s volume. The state plans to build about two thousand mega watt of new wind farm. … Open
