Warning to travelers in Spain

Jump to last reply

I would like to warn travelers in Spain not to take pictures of children. They said it is against the law in Sapin.
I arrived in the city of Huelva last June in the evening. I took a shower and started walking around the city to look for a good place to eat. Then I unexpectedly found that there was a flamenco recital by local children. The performing children (aged 6-7?) wore colorful flamenco outfit. I asked children if it's ok to take a picture of them. They said yes and posed for a nice picture. I took a picture and showed it them. Then a girl who was not dressed for performance and is a friend of performers said, how about me? Not to disappoint her I took a picture of her too. As I walked away from the crowd someone came running after me, grabbed me by my neck and tried to yank my iPhone from my hand. I thought I was being mugged. It turned out the man was the father of the non-performing girl. He was angry because I took a picture of his daughter without his permission. I offered to erase the picture, and he said no and called for the police. The police arrived in a few minutes and said it is illegal to take picture of children in Spain. I deleted all the pictures I took in the day in the presence of the police.
So there you have it, it maybe a perfect picture opportunity, but if it involves children, don't take the pictures in Spain.
