Spanish Low Emission Zones explained

There are currently 5 low emission zones in Spain. These are in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Valencia and Valladolid. Only the zone in Barcelona is permanently valid.

Depending on the degree of air pollution, the government decides which vehicles may continue to enter.
