You can expect local residents to be helpful if you have an emergency. For assistance, dial the pan-European emergency phone number 112, which is operative in northern Spain, but not all parts of Spain. Otherwise, dial the emergency numbers below for national police, local police, fire department, or medical services. On the road, there are emergency phones at frequent regular intervals on freeways (autovías) and toll highways (autopistas). They are marked S.O.S.
If your documents are stolen, contact both the police and your consulate or embassy. If you lose a credit card, phone the issuer immediately.
To find out which pharmacies are open late at night or 24 hours on a given day, look on the door of any pharmacy or in any local newspaper under "Farmacias de Guardia" or dial 010.
In Barcelona, Tourist Attention, a service provided by the local police department, can help if you're the victim of a crime or need medical or psychological assistance. English interpreters are on hand.
