Credit/debit cards in retail establishments

Does anyone know if retail establishments in Spain are legally required to accept debit/credit/bank cards as payment.
Iv'e noticed a number of, admittedly, smaller retailers in the Torrox area who do not accept cards as payment, it doesn't bother me either way but I'm curious ?

Re: Van or towbar and trailer?

I'd go with costakid, a flat back 4x4 is much more practical (you could always put a towbar on it later !

Re: Range Rover help!! Granada area
