Spain: It’s History, Language and Culture
Spain is a country located on the Iberian Peninsula and is located in the southwestern part of Europe. This is a land of famous kings and queens, mountains and beautiful cities. It’s also the land of the famous Dong Quixote, who fought with windmills, which can still be seen in several places across Spain. Madrid, the nation’s capital, is a beautiful city filled with winding streets, beautiful buildings, museums, and more. Here, people are known for going out late into the night and getting home in the wee hours of the morning. Madrid is also Spain’s largest city and is the financial and cultural center of the nation. Spain is made up of many cultures and peoples. The Romans were in Spain and contributed to the Spanish language, left roads, and monuments. Great Roman rulers also came from Spain including Trajan, Hadrian and Marcus Aurelius. The Moors ruled over the country for almost 800 years, leaving in their wake gorgeous architecture, poetry, science and more.
Spain is also known for its beautiful language of romance and culture. And let’s not forget Spanish food—what’s not to love? Famous Spanish kings and queens include Ferdinand and Isabella, who united their two kingdoms of Castile and Aragon when they married. Queen Isabella is responsible for giving Christopher Columbus the money for his fleet to sale to what he thought was India but ended up being an entirely new continent. Another famous Spanish king, Charles V, was a Hapsburg, who eventually became the Holy Roman Emperor. He sent Hernan Cortez and other explorers to the new world discovered by Columbus. We could go on and on—Spain is a beautiful, mystical country that has had a large impact on the entire world.
