Is there a website for looking up properties on the equivalent of the Land Registry in Spain? Or is there a separate Land Registry for each province?

I, think this is what you need. Please correct me if I am wrong as I have never used this site.

Thanks for that! The url you gave shows a message saying that the website has been changed. There’s an English front page at
From that page there’s free access to Datos Catastrales which can either take the Referencia Catastrale or you can drill down, from province to plot. On the latter, choosing the provincia from a drop-down list enables the search button for municipios and when one of those is selected, the street can be searched for, and then you enter a range of numbers which then returns a list of properties.
Click on a finca and then the information is shown in a table form, with fields in Spanish, and also a PDF can be downloaded showing the details with a plan of a the property. All for free! There are links to maps. A zoomable map of plots can be viewed, and the cartografia internet gives links for Google Maps etc. to view the plot by Street View.
So the first property I looked up couldn’t be found…
I started with Google Street View to find the place, a bar on the corner of two streets. Google had sent their car down the larger of the two roads and I identified the bar. It had the number 64 next to the door, and the next property along in the street was 66, the next 68 and so on. The name of the adjacent road could be seen, but Google hadn’t sent their car up this narrow street. Drilling down to the street I entered 64 as the number and a message box pops up No hay bienes para los datos seleccionados, i.e. not found. So tried 66 and from its plan it could be seen that the corner property was marked as 1 in the adjacent street, so I looked up that and retrieved the details for the corner plot. The property, a bar, is numbered 64 in the wrong street. Oh, and the uso is residencial.

I am not sure from your details if what you describe above was your intended object of the exercise or not. ?

Well, I was thinking along the lines of the Land Registry online enquiry in the UK. That returns a map showing the plot, the registered owner, purchase price if the sale was within a recent period of time. All for a fee though, £3+ I think.
So the link you gave hit the spot, except for owner and sale price details. Do you know if there’s a free way of getting that online? Or is that only possible through a lawyer?

I dont think you can get it on line as it seams you have tried. The lawyer or anybody else perhaps the
” gestor ” has to visit the land registery or have his ” enchufes ” to obtain the info.
