You would be operating under CEPT rules. All you need is a current copy 
of the CEPT agreement in four languages. This document is available 
through the ARRL's website. Your call sign will be a Spanish prefix like 
EA with a number for the zone you will be in, /(stroke) your US call 
sign. Check the prefix on the ARRL's website. Check the Spanish band 
plan too as it is different from the US, esp in 70cm I think.

Some European repeaters need a 1750Hz tone to be opened up. Check your 
radio's manual on how to get that tone to work.

Bon voyage!
