UK FCO SPAIN TRAVEL ADVICE: "Be particularly vigilant over Easter"

THE UK’S travel advice for Spain has just been revised and included a specific warning to ‘be particularly vigilant over Easter’.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office says over 12 million British nationals visit Spain every year and most visits are trouble-free.

But their travel advice to Spain has just updated and warns, “Terrorists may target religious sites, including churches.

“You should be particularly vigilant over the Easter period.

“Terrorists are likely to try to carry out attacks in Spain.

“Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places visited by foreigners.

“The Spanish authorities take measures to protect visitors, but you should be vigilant and follow the instructions of the local authorities.

The FCO goes on to remind travellers that on August 17 and 18 last year, there were two terrorist-related incidents where vehicles were driven directly at pedestrians, resulting in injuries and loss of life.

These were in the Las Ramblas area of Barcelona and Cambrils, near Salou (100km southwest of Barcelona).
Spain remains on a Level 4 terror threat alert – the same as the UK.

  1. Could have blown up the insane church next door to me would have been a relief to the neighborhood to be rid of their satanic noisy bells!

  2. Ian Hannaford, go away for Easter week next year OR don’t chose to live nexty door to the church – it was there before you OR go back where you came from! I am not religious, in other words I do not adhere to any doctrine, but the processions and associated crowds, noises, smells, are part of this culture. Thank you.

  3. Lovely fishing here in Spain, lots of nice carp. We return them to the river though.
    Can email you pics too. Living the good life Janet Taylor, Pedreguer
