Spain's expressways, the ''autopistas,'' are toll roads and are identified by the letter A.

For example, going from Barcelona to La Jonquera costs 11.40€ … that is 0.10 cents per kilometer.

''Blue zone'' parking exists in Spanish cities. Marked by the sign, ''Zona Azul,'' you may park for 2 hours. There are 4 different rates for the blue zone, depending on the demand of the zone. The most expensive is the Eixample and Ciutat Vella (A), where you can park for a maximum of 2 hours, at the price of 2.5€ per hour.
