Default Phones Cards in europe

I am only going to Western Europe this summmer for 2 months.

Can anyone recommend a good telephone calling card and also where to get it from? Ie in UK before I go, or when I am there abroad?

PS- my first stop in Barcelona and Madrid.

thanks in advance

You can buy phone cards when you are over there for pretty cheap. Some start at 3 euro's and up. When you buy a phone card in one country it normally only works in that country. So if your in Spain and you buy a card and then try to use it in France it probably won't work.
