Introduction
The Kingdom of Spain is located on the Iberian Peninsula. In addition to the mainland territory, Spain is also comprised of the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean, the Canary Islands off the west coast of Africa, the Moroccan cities Ceuta and Melilla, and Peñón de Vélez de la Gomera islands.

Spain is bordered by France, Andorra, and the Bay of Biscay to the north; Mediterranean on the east; Mediterranean and Gibraltar to the south; and Portugal and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. It is physically cut off from the rest of Europe by the Pyrenees. It also has land borders with Morocco.

Its unique position between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean as well as Europe and Africa has often put Spain in the middle of history and made it a cultural melting pot throughout the Middle Ages. For 300 years starting from the 16th century, Spain built a global empire through its explorations in the New World. That influence is remains apparent today throughout North and South America.

Population and language
Spain has a population of 47.1 million. The primary ethnic group is Castilian Spanish, followed by Catalan, Galician, and Basque, which all consider themselves separate nations within the country. There is also a small population of Gypsies, estimated to number anywhere from 50,000 to 450,000. The primary language is Spanish, followed by Catalan, Galician, and Basque.

Spain is predominantly a Catholic country, although 28 percent of citizens identify themselves as non-religious.

Major cities and tourist destinations
Madrid (pop: 5.8 milion); Barcelona (5.1 million); and Valencia (812,000) are the three largest cities in Spain.

Spain is one of the continent’s most popular destinations, travelers drawn by the country’s beaches, islands, nightlife, and cuisine. Spain in divided into five autonomous regions: Andalusia, where Madrid is located; Barcelona; Granada; Sevilla; and the former Moor stronghold, Córdoba.

La Concha in San Sebastian is considered one of the best beaches in Spain for surfing, swimming, or just walking along the sand.

Granada’s Alhambra palace complex takes a day to explore. Those visiting in the summer would be wise to buy a ticket in advance. There is still bullfighting in Spain, with bullrings located in most major cities.

Climate
The climate of Spain is diverse and varies depending on your location. The center of Spain is a plateau surrounded by mountain ranges. In that area, summers are hot and dry but in the winter temperatures can fall below freezing.

The area of Spain off the Mediterranean has mild winters and warm summers.

Economy
Spain has a mixed capitalist economy with a $1.456 trillion gross domestic product. Its major industries include fishing, iron mining, and agriculture including wine grapes. Spain is one of the largest exporters of oranges, mandarins, and lemons. Major imports include scotch whiskey, fuel, chemicals, medical instruments, and food products.

Transportation
Spain has many international airports located in every area of the country. The biggest are Madrid Barajas, Barcelona el Prat Airport, Málaga Airport and Alicante Airport.

The Spanish rail network, known as RENFE, services all major cities but doesn’t go to most small towns. For those, visitors need to use private rail lines, buses, or rent a car. Car Rentals are available at airports and at certain hotels.

Within cities there are also trams, taxis, and buses. Madrid, Barcelona, and Valencia have metros, which is the fastest way to get around.
