Separated from the rest of Europe by the Pyrenees, Spain reaches south to the coast of North Africa. It has both Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines,
and includes two archipelagos-the Balearics and the Canary islands.The climate and landscape vary from snow-capped peaks the Pyrenees, through
the green meadows of Galicia and the orange groves of Valencia, to the desert of Almeria. Madrid is the higher capital in Europe. Many Basques and
Catalans, do not consider themselves to be Spanish. Madrid may the nominal capital, but it is closely rivalled in commerce, the arts and sport by
Barcelona, the capital city of Catalonia. Spaniards commonly put as much energy into enjoining life as they do their work. The 1960s saw the beginning of spectacular economic growth, partly due to burgeoning tourist industry. Anyone who knows this country, will tell you that it is the Spanish people's capacity to enjoy life to the full that is Spain's biggest attraction.
Three Spanish painters stand out as milestones in the history of Western art. Diego de Velazquez was a 17th-century court portrait painter and his Las
Meninas is a seminal work .
Francisco de Goya depicted Spanish life during one of its most violent periods.
The prolific 20th-century master, Pablo Picasso, is recognized as the founder of modem art.
To these names must be added that of El Greco- who was born in Crete (Greece) but who lived in Spain, where he painted religious scenes in an individualistic style.
The work of these and Spain's many other
great artists can be seen in world-renowned galleries, especially the Prado.
Spain's capital, a city of over three million people, is situated close to the geographical centre of the country, at the hub of both road and rail
networks. Because of its distance from the sea and its altitude-660 m-the city endures cold winters and hot summers, making spring and autumn
the best times to visit. Madrid's attractions include three internationally famous art galleries, a royal palace, grand public squares and many
museums filled with the treasures of Spain's history.
Barcelona, one of the mediterranean's busies ports, is more than the capital of Catalonia. In culture, commerce and sport it not only rivals Madrid,
but also considers itself on par with the greatest European cities. The success of the 1992 Olympic games, staged in the Parc de Montjuic,
confirmed this to the world. There are plenty of historical monuments in the Old Town( Ciutat Vella ), Barcelona is best known for the scores of
buildings in the Example left by the artistic explosion of Modernism in the decades around 1900. Always open to outside influences because of
its location on the coast, not too far from the French border, Barcelona continues to sizzle with creativity:its bars and the public parks speak
more of bold contemporary design than of tradition.
