Spain is located in Southwestern Europe. It also lays claim and authority over many small islands off the coast of Africa and in the Mediterranean Sea.

Spain’s capital and largest city is Madrid. Spain has many other well known cities though, such as Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, Málaga and Bilbao. Many of these cities are also known for their world class football teams.

Most visitors to Spain arrive during the warm summer to enjoy the cities but also soak in the sun on the many beautiful beaches. Spain has a very mild climate compared to the rest of Europe though, so it is very enjoyable all year round.
