My understanding was that EU rules require that a
euro-denominated between-eurozone-countries interbank transfer is
required to be no more expensive than a within-country transfer.
Does it normally cost you Eur10 to make a domestic money transfer ?

world, so only pretty badly demented, rather than completely fucked
like the American one or, it appears, the situation in Spain.
