Estancos (Tobacconists): "Where to Buy Stamps!" Top 5 Page for this destination Cadiz Shopping Tip by blint

Cadiz Shopping: 16 reviews and 12 photos

For some reason here in Spain you don't buy Stamps from the Correos (Post Office), but from Tobacconists.

You won't see them on display or any signs saying they sell them, here in Cadiz you are expected to know.

So you walk in to a Tobacco shop and you ask for 'Sellos' (pronounced seyos) they will then ask you if it is for Europe or not. If you tell them what country you are sending your postcard or letter to they will automatically give you the correct amount.

There is no First Class and Second Class system here.
