Are Living Wills Recognised In Spain?

Living Will is called ´Declaración de Voluntad Vital Anticipada´ in Spain.
You have to register them with the relevant public authorities in your region for them to be valid and you can include all kinds of medical decisions that need to be made when you are not capable to do so yourself.
