Re: new padron

here it is called 'padron' ... and lasts only a few months ... in 2019 it cost me 2 euros ... and a lot of energy walking down and up steep village streets!

Re: new padron

s_l ... paying direct doesnt happen in Alcaucin!!! ... last time I applied for padron, the TH had moved to a temporary site at the top of village ... and the bank was right down the bottom ... suppose anyone who survived that walk down and up steep incline, deserved a padron!

Re: new padron

methinks the tricky bit will be trying to co-ordinate when TH is open for padron appplication and when the Unicaja bank is open to pay 2 euros ... currently bank is only open 3 days a week for 3 hours ... see what happens tomorrow with my first attempt!
