In spite of its peripheral position, Spain was always one of the support columns in Europe and one of the oldest and most important sources of European culture. Today, the "Monarchy of Spain" is a strong democracy with a parliamentary monarchy. And even the manifold nature of this proud country shows its royal side. The Spanish continent is often compared to a castle: steeply rising mountains are looming from the coasts protecting the inside highlands like walls. Due its isolation by the mountains, this country which is situated between the latitudes 36 and 43 has a relatively dry and in summer quite hot climate, although it is surrounded by the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean. It is more than difficult to describe Spanish nature in view of the unbelievable diversity. There is for example a world of difference between the commun ideas of a hot, dry Spain and the lush meadows of the mountains and coasts in the North. The regional characteristics and the still existing common awareness of life are typical for this country. Form yourself an idea. For, only by visiting Spain you'll really get to know Spain.
