        Torre is a big place
        The one i use is based in la florida and is banco facing witlow abey. They have a great big sign in the window that says we all spaek english and it helps a lot.
        not sure if its the best bank for charges ETC.

            I have found Banco Halifax good as they make no charges on my account as long as i leave in 600E and am not charged any telegraphic transfer fees if i have to make any transactions from the UK (providing you have a UK based Halifax account).

                You may find that you can also do 'deals' with your Bank Manager here in Spain. We were quoted various charges for account maintenance, credit cards, transfers, etc., but we sat down and explained to him how our account would be run, and most of the charges were eliminated.
                Ask and ye shall receive??
                Always worth a try. It is also very easy to change to another Bank if you see better deals.
                Talk to the Manager first, it is surprising what they can do if they want to keep your business.

                  I found Halifax had a bit too much red tape. Bank of Valencia seem to give their manager's more autonomy. They're also set up for the English.
