Haven't a clue what the law is, but it seemed optional when I was over there - I don't think
it's upheld.

I did a tour in Spain a couple of years back. I took a helmet as I couldn't find any info on the
law. It remained firmly strapped to the handlebars. I didn't see anyone wearing one over there.(It's
too hot) We had no trouble from the rozzers and a wonderful time was had by all.

Have a great trip Dave

And your handlebars remained perfectly unhurt -- proving conclusively the beneficial effects of a
h*lm*t :))))))))))))))))))))))

It's required outside towns, with an exception for long mountain climbs.

It's also widly ignored.

The main problem would be if you had a crash - not wearing a helmet would count against you.

Personally last time I was there I wore a helmet when it was < 25C and not when it was above. Even
then the helmet spent a lot of time wrapped to the bars on the climbs
