In Spain, electric appliances work at 220 volts, CA.50 HZ, whereas in the US and Canada they need 110 volts and 60 HZ. The wall-sockets use the European system of round pin plugs. Therefore, if you wish to bring your electric shaver, hairdryer or another electric appliance from a country that uses a different voltage system or plug arrangement, you will need a transformer and a plug adapter. Most large hotels provide them, and you can also buy them in specialist shops and large department stores in Granada.
