A new law has been introduced that will force all pubs to offer tap water to their customers for free.

The regulation states: “Hospitality establishments must always offer consumers, customers or users of their services the opportunity to consume unpackaged water free of charge and in addition to the offer of the same establishment.”

It coincides with Spain’s push to reduce its use of plastics, particularly plastic water bottles, which often litter tourist hotspots.

Water fountains will also soon be installed near city centers and beaches. So if you take a refillable bottle with you to spend days exploring the city, you can save even more money.

The Spanish government confirmed that the coercive rule will be lifted on April 20, 700 days after it was introduced.

It will continue to be needed on all public transport, on airplanes, in health services of all kinds and in pharmacies.
