Guide of SPAIN
Spain, situated on the Mediterranean coast, is a fascinating land of culture, history and beaches. The variety of languages spoken in Spain reminds us of the rich history and diverse cultures that exist within the country. Alongside the official language of Spanish, there are regional languages including Catalan, Valencian, Galician, Basque and Arenese. In addition to the mainland territory, there are also the Canary Islands and the Balearics which are also part of Spain.
Spain has a history characterised by victory and defeat, the Romans and Muslims dominated the peninsula for a long time until Spain regained its autonomy in 1469 with the reunification of Castile and Aragon, due to the marriage between Isabella I of Castile and Ferdinand of Aragon. During colonial times, the Spanish empire was one of the most vast European powers, conducting trade between Europe and colonies in South America to aid economic and cultural expansion.
