Postal codes were introduced and standardized in Spain in 1985, when Correos (the national postal service of Spain) introduced automated mail sorting. The first two digits (ranging 01–52) of the postal code correspond to one of the fifty provinces of Spain (as listed in general alphabetical order, with some exceptions), plus the two autonomous cities on the African coast.

Following digitsEdit

Some codes are reserved for special use at the province capital:

  • 070 for official use by Correos.
  • 071 to address state agencies at the given province.
  • 080 for P.O. boxes and mail lists.

Former postal districtsEdit

Large cities such as Madrid and Barcelona, were divided into postal districts (zonas in Spanish) similar to the arrondissement system in Paris.

  • Plaza de España, 18
Madrid 8[1]
  • Travessera de Gràcia, 56, 4rt 1a.
Barcelona 6[2]

These former postal districts were incorporated into the five-digit postal codes:

  • Plaza de España, 18
28008 Madrid
  • Travessera de Gràcia, 56, 4rt 1a.
08006 Barcelona
