REGIONS of SPAIN
Spain is a very diverse country, mainly on cultural, climatic and geographical terms.
Its splendid beauty and an absolutely privileged geographic and strategic setting - straddling Europe,
of which it is part, and Africa - has made Spain since antiquity a crossroads, a point of encounter between east and west. The diverse peoples, races and civilisations that have come here and found it an irresistible place to settle, have left behind them a unique, original culture that has proven to be an admirable experiment in synthesis.
The geographical and consequently the climatic variations of Spain from one region to another are also as rich as its cultural heritage. The Northern and Northwestern regions of Spain are humid and green; Inland Spain, sparsely populated and infinitely flat; Mediterranean Spain, fertile and luminous; Southern Spain - Andalucia - the most famous, hot and dry and as bright as the whitewash of its homes; and the two "Island Spain's" like sisters, but very different: The Balearic Isles, which have preserved the wisdom of the Mare Nostrum, and the Canary Islands, a phantasmagorical volcanic mountain range hovering over the Atlantic ocean.
