Discover the best service areas in Spain

A truck driver’s job can be very tough. Their job is to drive for hours (sometimes for days) on all kinds of roads and deliver goods on time. That is why it is so important that there are rest stops along the way so that truckers can relax for a few hours or even spend the night.

On the more than 165,000 km of roads in Spain there are hundreds of service areas where trucks can rest, but in this article we want to highlight some of the best service areas in Spain for you to consider the next time you are on the road.

Porta de Barcelona (Castellbisbal)

The Porta de Barcelona service area is right next to Consman and is located at km 165 of the AP-7 motorway, near Barcelona. In fact, it is one of the last service areas before entering the city.

It has an area for parking trucks and has a good restaurant where they serve all kinds of breakfasts, lunches and dinners. It is the ideal place if your truck is in the Consman workshop and you want to have a quiet lunch.

La Padrosa (Llers)

Situated in a strategic location, at exit 3 of the AP-7, very close to the French border, we find ourselves in the La Padrosa service area. It is one of the largest areas in Spain and has a large number of services and facilities for truck drivers to find everything they need to rest.

It is open every day of the year. We can find a huge car parking with security so that the haulier can rest easy knowing that his vehicle is safe. There is a car wash, petrol station, supermarkets, restaurant, cafeteria and green areas with picnic. There are even areas with showers and toilets so that one can wash up if they have been on the road for days. Without a doubt, this service area is one of the most complete in the country.

AVINSA Centro de Transportes (Madrid)

Another large service area with a wide range of services. The AVINSA Centro de Transporte is located on the southern outskirts of Madrid. It has a fully guarded and patrolled car park for trucks, trailers and other industrial vehicles.

Many hauliers highlight its facilities which have everything: bar, restaurant, petrol station, car wash, repair shop and even the Iveco dealership, a leading manufacturer of industrial vehicles, is located next door.

Andamur Guarromán (Jaén)

If the transport route passes through Andalusia, we recommend this Andamur service area located very close to Guarromán, in the province of Jaén. It is located at km 288 of the A4 and has everything necessary for the truck driver to relax, rest and regain energy to keep going.

Another place where the car park is very large and is guarded for greater security. It also stands out for its quality food and services such as a shop, supermarket, laundry and showers. Undoubtedly, it is a place of reference for transporters passing through the south of Spain.

El Gallo (Casar de Cáceres)

Finally, we have what is probably the most famous service area of the Ruta de la Plata, El Gallo located in Casar de Cáceres. The Silver Route runs along the A-66 motorway from Seville to Gijón, making it the most important route in western Spain.

Crossing Extremadura, at km 539 of the A-66, we find El Gallo, a very large service area with guarded parking and plenty of space for trucks and other industrial vehicles. Of course, you can’t miss out on services such as a restaurant, where the huge sandwiches served there stand out. There is also a shop, petrol station, showers…

And these are the best service areas in Spain to park your industrial vehicle and rest. Planning the route is very important for the haulier and we hope that if on one of your routes you pass through these areas, do not hesitate to stay and enjoy their services.

Remember that at Consman we specialise in the repair and maintenance of large and heavy vehicles. In our workshop we have everything necessary for the inspection and repair of trucks and buses as well as qualified and very professional staff.
