Answers for your Spanish law questions


The Spanish Constitution is the primary source of law. The Tribunal Constitucional interprets the Constitution, ensures that the exercise of power by both the legislature and the executive is constitutional, and protects the rights of individuals.


Spanish law follows the continental system, which means it is mostly based on constitutionally-supported laws and regulations, and is also partly on judicial decisions and customs. Spanish law is also partly based on European Union legislation.


Spain has several notably unique laws that visitors need to remember, such as a prohibition in many coastal cities against wearing swimwear on the streets. There are also complicated laws about what visitors can bring into the country, how long they may stay and how they can buy property.


If you have any question about Spanish law, it’s in your best interest to get accurate, up-to-date information. Legal Experts at JustAnswer are available at any time, day or night, without having to make an appointment or pay an hourly rate.
