The postal code in Spain

As the population and the number of municipalities increased, communications became more difficult, thus arising the need to create a system that would allow a faster and easier sending of letters from one place to another in the territory.

Postal codes were born with the idea of ​​organizing the postal system of a certain country or region. The first postal code system was created in Ukraine in 1932 and its success was such that it ended up spreading to the rest of the world.

In Spain zip codes exist since 1982, were created through Royal Decree 1794/1982, of July 9 and are made up of five figures.
