Galicia legislation in motorhome or camper

Legislation of Galicia for motorhomes: vigilance against camping on the coast and protection of natural landscapes

The legislation is the same as the Spanish state in Galicia.

If a municipality does not prohibit us by ordinance from parking and / or overnighting of motorhomes, we can park and spend the night without problem, as long as we do not leave the parking marks and do not camp (this is very important).

Bans on parking / spending the night in Galicia in a motorhome, sometimes, and always camping!

In some points of mainly coastal municipalities, they veto us parking and spend the night in their streets. Unfortunately, this is the result of the abuse of many who have camped where they should not. The most prohibitions are to spend the night in motorhomes, especially in parking lots on the coast, in the interior there is no problem as a general rule.

What is extremely forbidden, and this is by law for all of Spain, it is camping. We cannot camp in any public place.

And remember, that camping is spending more than 72 hours in the same place or going outside the perimeter of the vehicle (opening a simple window, taking out the awning or taking out the table and chairs is camping).

Advice to avoid camping with heat in Galicia in a motorhome or camper

That is why a tip if you come in summer, come with autonomous air conditioning or an autonomous Viesa-type refrigerator so as not to open windows or take anything out and thus avoid all kinds of fines while also being cool in your camper or motorhome. For us, God Viesa is everything 🙂 It should come standard and not be an extra, we always say it, so surely many would stop camping and stop us from banning unique places.
