Spain

History of Spain

Situated in southwest Europe, Spain has a varied range of cultural influences woven throughout its rich historical fabric. Spain is located on the Iberian Peninsula, which has been inhabited for thousands of years. The first people to live there were Iberians, Celts, and Basques. Following its conquest in the second century BCE, the Roman Empire left behind an enduring legacy of notable advances in law, infrastructure, and culture. After Rome fell, the Visigoths ruled until the Muslim Moors from North Africa arrived and established Al-Andalus in the early eighth century. This era, which lasted until the late 15th century, was distinguished by notable advancements in philosophy, science, and architecture as well as by the unusual coexistence of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim communities.

The Fall of Granada and the Dawn of Empire

Following a succession of Christian governments’ battles to retake territory, known as the Reconquista, Muslim authority in Spain came to an end in 1492 with the fall of Granada. Additionally, Christopher Columbus’s voyage, which was funded by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, took place in this year and resulted in the discovery of the New World and the start of Spain’s Golden Age. After constructing a sizable empire over the Americas, Asia, and Europe, Spain became the dominating force in the world. Huge riches poured into Spain at this time, fostering the flowering of the arts and culture personified by writers and artists like Velázquez and Cervantes. However, the decline started in the 17th century as a result of economic difficulties, military overstretch, and the emergence of other European powers. By the 19th century, it had lost both its colonies and its influence.
