    Where to Buy film in Spain

    I will be traveling to Spain in Dec of next year. I plan on taking my Rollie's and my F3. I don't want to hassle with the film at the airport, so is there a reliable place in southern Spain to buy 120 and 35mm Black&White film?I plan to mail the exposed film back to myself.
    No escaping it!
    I must step on fallen leaves
    to take this path

    In Barcelona there are two good shops in the center:

    - Eurosimer, C/Enric Granados, 68 08008. Barcelona Tel. 93 451 25 41
    - ARPI, La Rambla, 38, 08002 Barcelona

    The spanish mail is VERY slow and unreliable, it can take several weeks until simple postcards arrive at their destination in France or Germany... I would NEVER give them my films.

    There is also Casanova foto. C/Pelai, 18. They have good prices for Kodak B&W. Check their web.

    Well. I have never used correos for sending mail myself, but it doesn't have the best reputation. Mail will arrive, but slowly. I've only used them because Royal Mail packages get passed to Correos. People say Royal Mail will bring it to spain in a day or two, and correos will take longer to deliver it across the country.
    You may want to look into courier companies. Here we've got Seur (FedEx), UPS, MRW among others. People seem to be happy about MRW.

    When I was in Spain I often processed my films at night in the hotel... :-) No spanish airport X-Ray, no mail, no courier.
