Spain occupies most of the Iberian Peninsula, stretching south from the Pyrenees Mountains to the Strait of Gibraltar, which separates Spain from Africa as you can see in Spain map. To the east lies the Mediterranean Sea, including Spain Balearic Islands. Spain also rules two cities in North Africa and the Canary Islands in the Atlantic.
Spain is the third biggest country in Europe and it has a land area of 194,845 squared miles, to fit the different regions. It also has a coast line that spans 3,000 miles. Spain regions can be divided up into five different regions as its shown in Spain map. The five regions are green Spain, inland Spain, the Pyrenees, Southern Spain, and Mediterranean Spain. Green Spain is located in the north and northwest parts of Spain. Green Spain is a wet and it has an evergreen climate.
The variety of cultures in Spain derives from the seventeen autonomous regions located within the country. These regions as its mentioned in Spain map include: Andalusia, Aragon, Asturias, the Balearic Islands, the Basque Country, the Canary Islands, Cantabria, Castile La Mancha, Castile and León, Catalonia, Valencia, Extremadura, Galicia, La Rioja, Comunidad de Madrid, Murcia and Navarre. Through the eyes of some, the intense diversity of Spain provides a source of pride; through other eyes, however, the many regional differences surface as a source of friction due to lack of overall unity. Spain is sometimes even referred to as “The Spains.”

The name España is of uncertain origin; from it derived the Hispania of the roman Empire. Important regions within the modern nation are the Basque Country (País Vasco), the Catalan-Valencian-Balearic area, and Galicia—each of which has its own language and a strong regional identity. Others are Andalucía and the Canary Islands; Aragón; Asturias; Castile; Extremadura; León; Murcia; and Navarra, whose regional identities are strong but whose language, if in some places dialectic, is mutually intelligible with the official Castilian Spanish. The national territory is divided into fifty provinces as you can see in Spain on map, which date from 1833 and are grouped into seventeen autonomous regions, or comunidades autónomas.
Spain is a constitutional monarchy, with a hereditary monarch and a bicameral parliament, the Cortes Generales as its shown in Spain on map. The executive branch consists of a Council of Ministers of Spain presided over by the Prime Minister, nominated and appointed by the monarch and confirmed by the Congress of Deputies following legislative elections. By political custom established by King Juan Carlos since the ratification of the 1978 Constitution, the king's nominees have all been from parties who maintain a plurality of seats in the Congress.
Spain capitalist mixed economy is the twelfth largest worldwide and the fifth largest in the European Union, as well as the Eurozone fourth largest. The centre-right government of former prime minister José María Aznar worked successfully to gain admission to the group of countries launching the euro in 1999. Unemployment stood at 7.6% in October 2006, a rate that compared favorably to many other European countries, and especially with the early 1990s when it stood at over 20% as its mentioned in Spain on map. Perennial weak points of Spain economy include high inflation, a large underground economy, and an education system which OECD reports place among the poorest for developed countries, together with the United States and UK.

The official language of Spain is Castilian Spanish, but Euskara, Catalan, and Gallego are recognized as the predominant languages in their respective regions. Geography is one of the subdividing features of Spain cultural regions, but also the reason for other cultural differences such as language, regional influence, and music as you can see in the detailed map of Spain. The abundant mountains create natural boundaries that inhibit the spread of language which, for example, lead to the Euskara language spoken in Basque Country. Due to the impenetrable mountains, Castilian Spanish was unable to reach Basque Country. Thus the distinct Basque language, which has no linguistic relation to any known language, living or lost, continued to develop.
Spain population of 39,852,651 in early 1999 represented a slight decline from levels earlier in the decade. The population had increased significantly in every previous decade of the twentieth century, rising from under nineteen million in 1900. Spain declining birthrate, which in 1999 was the lowest in the world, has been the cause of official concern. The bulk of Spain population is in the Castilian provinces (including Madrid), the Andalusian provinces, and the other, smaller regions of generalized Castilian culture and speech. The Catalan and Valencian provinces (including the major cities of Barcelona and Valencia), along with the Balearic Islands, account for about 30 percent of the population as its shown in the detailed map of Spain, Galicia for about 7 percent, and Basque Country for about 5 percent.
Spain is now composed of 17 autonomous communities and two autonomous cities as its mentioned in the detailed map of Spain with varying degrees of autonomy thanks to its Constitution, which nevertheless explicitly states the indivisible unity of the Spanish nation. The constitution also specifies that Spain has no state religion and that all are free to practice and believe as they wish.

Northern Spain extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean, bounded by the Pyrenees Mountains at the border with France as you can see in the map of Northern Spain. With its diverse landscapes and distinct provinces, this beautiful area of Spain offers something for every type of traveler. The energetic, culture-packed city of Barcelona has fabulous art museums and fantastic architecture.

Southern Spain is home to an unfair share of beautiful towns and cities. Unforgettable destinations should be on every traveller bucket list, from the enchanting capital of Seville to undiscovered gems such as Estepona and Cádiz as you can see in the map of Southern Spain. Andalucia (or Andalusia) is a massive region in the South of Spain known for sprawling mountain regions, beaches and stunning Moorish architecture.
Seville is likely to be one of the most romantic and attractive cities you will ever experience. Named by Lonely Planet as the best city to visit in 2018, the Andalusian capital is made up of some of the most enchanting neighbourhoods in southern Spain, such as the old Jewish quarter of Santa Cruz and the former gypsy barrio of Triana as its shown in the map of Southern Spain. Described by the poet and Hispanophile Laurie Lee as “probably the most beautiful and haunting of all Spanish cities”, Granada spills out from in between the lush Darro valley at the bottom of the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Ronda is Andalusia most spectacularly located town in southern Spain. Linking up its two halves is Puente Nuevo, a stunning bridge completed in 1793 after 40 years of perilous construction. Jerez de la Frontera is one of the secret wonders of southern Spain, a city that combines the stateliness of the Andalusian capital with the scruffy charms of Cádiz as its mentioned in the map of Southern Spain. From Jerez, it is just half an hour drive to another of Andalusia often-overlooked destinations. Packed onto a rectangular outcrop of land looking out to the Atlantic, Cádiz has a bohemian, scruffy charm all of its own.
