Sword Shop

by peterwillson Online Now Aug 20, 2010 at 12:52 AM

I am on holiday in Llafranc and want to buy a sword for ceremonial duty back in England. Have you got an idea where I can get one in Girona or near by on the Costa Brava

    You do realise that you will have to bring it back in hold luggage? And there might possibly be squeals and hiccups anyway?

    There should be not a problem carrying it in hold luggage. The problem will be finding a sword in Girona or nearby in this area that's not a plastic toy sword.

    As Pedro, I was to suggest you to ask the the tourist office, sure it will be not the weirdest question they received. But definitely the only place in Spain known for sword-making is Toledo.

    I's say you have a lot more chances to find it on eBay.

    I am driving back so no problem with luggage. As the weather was bad yesterday went for a drive down the coast and found a shop selling swords in Tossa, however they were straight out of Lord of the Rings and looked like they were suitable for a Dark Lord to carry. Just wanted a plain sword!

    Thanks for the suugestions if you think of any where please let me know
