Hi MattC! I recall seeing MANY chess sets around Spain - mainly in the tourist shops - made of marble. I can't say I've ever seen them made of wood. Sure you could pick up a cheaper one at El Rastro (the Sunday flea market) in Madrid, but they're literally everywhere in the cities and of all sizes/prices.
for Barcelona information, Transportation, Lodging, & much MUCH more!
