In the west of Spain is the oldest university city in Spain, Salamanca. In this inspiring city you will also find many monasteries and museums. The Spanish capital Madrid is located in the centre of Spain. Here you can visit the Royal Palace.

What is the history of Spain?
The mountain areas of northern Spain were never conquered by the Moors. From there began the re conquest of Spain from the 12th century by the Christian kings of Castile and Aragon. The Moors kept getting pushed back to the South. In 1492 the last Moorish territories were conquered by the Spanish king. From that time on, the whole country was centrally ruled from Madrid and Spain became Catholic. Columbus discovered America in 1492. Columbus, born Italian, was given three ships by the Spanish king to find the way to the Indies, but ended up in America. From this period, the Spanish kingdom was further built up. This was accompanied by many wars and revolts. Spain is now a democracy. The head of state is a king and the population elects parliament. Spain joined the European Union in 1986.
Economy of Spain:
Spain has a highly developed infrastructure, with good road, rail and air links throughout the country. It is well connected to the rest of Europe, with the high-speed AVE train connecting Madrid to Barcelona in just two and a half hours.
The Spanish economy has been growing steadily since the 1990s, with a period of strong growth in the mid-2000s. Since then, however, the economy has been affected by the global financial crisis, with the country suffering a severe economic downturn. In 2012, the Spanish economy was in recession, with unemployment at 27% and the public debt reaching a record high of 93% of GDP.
Since then, the Spanish economy has been recovering, with GDP growth of 3.2% in 2017. The unemployment rate has also fallen to 17.2% in 2018, although this is still comparatively high.
Spain is a major exporter of goods, with exports accounting for around 30% of GDP. The country’s main exports are automotive products, food and agriculture, chemicals, and textiles. The main export partners are France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy and Portugal.
In recent years, Spain has also become increasingly attractive to foreign investors, with the country receiving over €18 billion in foreign direct investment in 2018.
Overall, the Spanish economy is highly diversified and competitive, and it has a strong potential for further growth. The country is well-positioned to benefit from its strategic location, with good connections to the rest of Europe and a highly developed infrastructure.
