Spain:
MEETING POINT
Spain is country of contrasts,
presenting different heights,
relieves, and scenaries. All that
has made our country very well-
known internationally and
tourism is actually the main
income
The geographical location in the
southwerstern end of Europe
allows Spain to have unique
contacts with the continents that
surround us: Europe, Africa or even
America, on the other side of the
Atlantic ocean. This relationship
has had a posivitive influence
throughout the history.
The first inhabitants came
from Africa and became the
most ancient people in
Europe . They brought us the
use of fire and the first
religious ideas
We share with France the
decoration in the northtern caves,
representing the main aspects in
people s life: haunting,
motherhood, etc..
Several centuries after that,
people from the end of the
Mediterranean sea, arrived. They
know quite well sailing and went
along the Spanish coasts ,
establishing in different places.
Most had their origin in Fenicia
and they contributed to the
development of the people they
got in touch with.
Greeks and Romans also used
the Mediterranean Sea as a
way to travel and they
brought their tecniques,
habits, culture, way of life and
something very important:
the language
The disappearance of the
Roman Empire allowed us to
know other people – The
Barbarians. In this case they
didn t improve culture, but took
us to the feudalist system that
spread all over Europe
Again, and from Africa, people with
big importance for us came. They
meant an important cultural,
tecnological and economical
advance- a development that
turned Espain into a reference in
Europe, although , as they have a
very different religion- ISLAM, they
were prosecuted.
Spain was an example of mixed
cultures and religions, as we
could find Christians, Jews,
Muslims….
However, during the reign of
Elisabeth and Fernando ,
other religions, different
from the Catholic were
prosecuted
At the end of the XV
century, the advances in
navigation and the
knowledge of geography
made that kings wanted to
turn Spain into a great
country and this made
possible the discovery of
America
The discovery of America
brought ont only wealth-
gold and silver or products
such as potatoes,
tomatoes, cocoa, tobacco,
but also a knowledge of
new cultures: Incas,
Mayans, Aztecs…..
The XVI century was a
period of development for
Spain and it was called “
THE GOLDEN CENTURY”,
when Spain had the
political and cultural
power worldwide
But the historical
evolution didn t
benefit Spain and the
country entered in a
period of decadence
The XIX century was a
period of political,
economical and social
changes that ended as it
began- with a war against
the United States in which
we lost our colonies in
America ( Cuba) or Asia (
Philippines)
The XX century has been
varied. We lived a terrible civil
war whose consequencies
come till today
During the XX century, we have
also passed from not
participating in any of the World
Wars to having an active
participation in the European
institutions, becoming an
example of the impact that
organizing events such as the
Olympic Games in Barcelona in
1992 can have in a country
And showing the world
that Spain has turned into
a country of many
contrasts and cultures
