"Take Caution of the Airports" Spain Warnings Or Dangers Tip by SvetlanaL

Spain Warnings and Dangers: 115 reviews and 55 photos

Be aware that airport security was not as strict as it could have been when I went there several years ago.
There was no real emergency when I was there, but when my mother and I were leaving Barcelona and going to London, we had brought some souvenirs. These were table lighters in the shape of granades that had the Spain's emblem on them. These wear heavy and carefully made and even had a pin as a safety that one had to remove to spark the lighter.
These lighters did not show up in any security scans in Barcelona, but when we were leaving London we had them confiscated.
