That was my favourite place on the Spanish coast as well.

Yes, I suppose that maybe there are some comarcal roads with very low quantity traffic which don't have the sign, but in general all have it.

Yes

And by law (considering official signs to be set on roads). Region changes too. There are 47 provinces and 15 regions in mainland (not islands). Sometime you can drive for a long time within the same province and region, sometime the same road shifts several times from one to other province.

I have found some examples of province/region missing but I only know three cases in main routes or motorways. Two of them due to stretch in a region is quite small to overcrowd road with signals

According to this article it must be the Túnel de Soller on Mallorca. With a charge of €1,67/km it has the highest charge/km.

AP68 from AP1 to Logroño crosses for a while Castilla y Leon and not pointed.

N113 between La Rioja and Navarra crosses Aragon for 20 metres or so and not pointed (there is a stone besides the road that makes as evidence). The same road enters again in Aragon in Valverde village and not pointed.

A22 has Catalonia signs but not Aragon ones. There is a dispute about the owner of 100m or so.....

These are main routes (one road, one motorway and one tolled motorway) I know.

For local roads maybe the longest way is from Uncastillo to Sos. It enters in a enclave from Navarra and not pointed for more than 5 km

In C-32 (Catalan government motorway) the border between the provinces of Barcelona and Tarragona is not signed, there are signs just saying the change of comarca (county), from Garraf to Baix Penedès, but no indication of the change of province.

Not only in that road but in the whole Catalonian network, provinces are not signed but shires
If you know the area you will notice that all provinces bounds fit with shares (with one exemption)

In Aragon shires are also signed in regional network

Drove this week in Spain for the first time in many years. Forgot how messy the signage is, I mean it's overkill. At one point I saw 4 yield signs on a single lane merging into the highway. The amount of signs is just crazy and confusing at times, especially around larger cities.

Was impressed by the state of the roads though, the network is great and has very low traffic volumes (at least in the North around Pamplona).

Cabo de Gata

Some scenes from Cabo de Gata (east of Almería).

Many roads in Google Earth are labelled incorrectly. Sometimes they are different from Google Maps as well.

1. AL-4200 along the coast.

2. North of San José.

Cabo de Gata-2 by European Roads, on Flickr

3. Along AL-4200.

Before planning your trip, keep in mind that the 12th of October and the 1st of November are national holidays in Spain. Both days, along with the 9th and the 30th (of October) will likely be some of the worst regarding traffic conditions. The 1st of November will be Sunday anyway, but still many people will travel to pay a visit to their dead relatives.
