City tours, excursions and tickets in Gran Canaria and surroundings

Moving around in Spain - transportation

Buses are the best alternative to trains. According to the schedule, it becomes clear that buses run more often than trains and their tickets cost almost twice lower. Bus stations are located practically in every city. You can significantly economize if you make tickets reservation in advance. However, please note that tickets with large discounts are nonrefundable. Trips on the international bus carrier “Alsa” are very popular among tourists. Within a city, you can also easily move around by metro. It is worth considering that the cost of the metro tickets will depend on the number of transport zones crossed. The minimum price is one and a half euro. So, as Spain is bordered by the seas from three sides, transportation by sea is also popular here, particularly by ferries. With their help, you can get from the mainland to any island in the country. This is also an excellent option for those who want to travel by car, because all ferries also have impressive baggage compartments for transporting cars. … Open

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
