Postal codes were introduced and standardized in Spain in 1976, 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.

2-digit prefixes[edit]

Following digits[edit]

Large cities such as Madrid and Barcelona, were divided into postal districts (zonas in Spanish) similar to the arrondissement system in Paris. These former postal districts were incorporated into the five-digit postal code:

Former Current
Plaza de España, 18 Madrid 8 28008 Madrid
Travessera de Gràcia, 68 –70, 1º. Barcelona 6 08006 Barcelona

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.
