Beware of parking crook with a pocket full of nails.....

Beware of parking crook with a pocket full of nails.....

A beautiful town with magnificent historical buildings and views that we were able to find courtesy of the towns tourist information office who were informative and helpful. What a shame that the town (and our visit) is let down by a petty criminal wreaking havoc in the car parks!!! Demanded 2 or 3 euros (no ticket given but wears a hi viz vest) from us when we arrived and nail in the car tyre when we returned......... He was keen (very) to help me change it but for more euros. It is a disgrace that the local authorities permit this to continue knowing who the culprit is and what he is doing, just found a review from December 17 with similar circumstances. Strongly suggest you avoid visiting otherwise it will cost you time, money & hassel!!

That is ridiculous. Tire deflated but did you find the nail actually pierced through? Next time I visit I will make a lot of fuss. Can you please confirm actual location of car park to make sure.

I sent an email to The Tourist Office there.

I had a nice reply saying they would tell the Ayuntamiento about it.
