It is common for every home in Spain to have a telephone capable of local, long distance and international calls. One can make an international call simply by dialing zero and then the country, city and phone number.

Pay phones are easily found in both cities and villages and are fairly inexpensive, even for international calls. Most phones are designed to take either coins or calling cards. Cell phones have grown in popularity and currently are widely used.
