Spain's second largest city Barcelona on Wednesday said it would soon outlaw street prostitution, imposing fines on both prostitutes and their clients.
The city hall said the new rules were expected to come into play in May.
Prostitution is not illegal in Spain and a number of parties on the municipal council suggested a change in the law was needed rather than a municipal edict.
Currently street prostitution is only illegal in the city if it is carried out near schools or churches.
