In the year 1939 up to 1975 Spain was under the dictatorship of Francisco Franco. During this time Franco wanted to unify the division between Spain and other regional languages and to promote the Roman Catholic Church as the official religion of the country. However, after his death in the year 1975 the country’s government returns into democracy under the administration of King Juan Carlos 1. This is the beginning of the expressions of fun and  art as well as the night life called the La Movida.

Spain is a beautiful country of southern Europe located at Iberian Peninsula. With more than 46 million inhabitants of about 504,782km2, Spain becomes the 51th world’s largest cities. Its original name is he Kingdom of Spain or Reino de España.

Most of their music consists of folk music but nowadays heavy metal and hip is also becoming popular in the country. One of the most popular musical instrument in the world, the guitar, came to us from Spain, its country of origin.

Spanish people like European football as their favorite sport in the same way that Americans like American football. In fact, Spain has captured the FIFA world cup 2010 as well as the EUFA championship in 2008 and way back 1964.
