More about Spain

  • ALLCOUNTRYLIST: Overview of major industries in Spain, including mining, construction, transportation, tourism, and foreign trade.

Spain borders France and Andorra to the northeast, Portugal to the west and Gibraltar to the south.

The area of ​​mainland Spain (505 935 km 2) takes up over four fifths of the Iberian Peninsula and is therefore identical in geological structure, surface shape and climate – with the exception of the western part of Portugal. Spain also includes the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands off the African coast.

With an average height of 660 m above sea level, Spain’s landscape is considered to be quite mountainous within Europe. Its characteristic landforms are closely related to the historical territories. The heartland of Castile takes up about two thirds of the total area and extends over wide, sparsely populated plateaus (meseta), surrounded by sill-like mountain ranges, which are slightly inclined to the west, through the Castilian divide into the smaller northern meseta with Old Castile and León and into the greater southern meseta to be shared with New Castile and Extremadura. Check vaultedwatches to see Spain Travel Destinations.

The north meseta (800–850 m mean altitude above sea level) is drained by the river system of the Duero, the south meseta (500–700 m mean altitude, in the southwest 300–150 m) by the river systems of the Tagus and Guadiana. On the other hand, peripheral landscapes are the Galician Mountains (Galicia) in the northwest, Asturias and the Basque Country (with parts of the Cantabrian Mountains) in the north, the Ebro Basin with Navarra, La Rioja and Aragon and Catalonia bordering the Mediterranean (with the Catalan mountains) in the northeast, also that of Guadalquivir drained Andalusia (with the mountainous High Andalusia and Lower Andalusia in the Guadalquivir Basin) in the south, then the coastal landscapes of Valencia and Murcia, which border the Mediterranean in the east and southeast.

The outermost edge is formed by the two highest mountains, the Pyrenees in the northeast (Pico de Aneto with 3,404 m above sea level) and the Betic Cordillera (with the Sierra Nevada and the highest peak Mulhacén 3 478 m above sea level) in the south. With soaring peaks and deeply cut valleys, the Canary Islands have completely different forms of landscape, the formation of which can be traced back to volcanic processes. This volcanism is particularly visible on Lanzarote and La Palma.

The highest point in Spain is the extinct stratovolcano Pico de Teide (3 718 m above sea level) on the Canary Island of Tenerife. It is considered to be one of the highest island volcanoes on earth. The coastline (excluding islands) is 3,144 km, 1,663 km of which is on the Mediterranean Sea. The Atlantic coast in the north and northwest has Riyal coasts with sufficiently deep and protected natural harbors, the coastal strips on the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic coast in the southwest are alluvial coasts with arched, wide-span coastal courtyards between steep, rocky promontories and poorly protected harbors.

Of the major rivers, only the Ebro and Guadalquivir flow along the whole length of Spain, according to the inclination of the surface of their basins. In the catchment area of ​​the Meseta plateau, the Miño, Duero and Tajo flow into Portuguese territory because of their slight western roofing; the Guadiana is a border river; the main watershed between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean runs far to the east in a north-south orientation, hence the eastward flowing rivers Turia, Júcar and Segura much shorter. The seasonally strongly fluctuating water flow with previously devastating melt floods in spring has been largely compensated for by the construction of barrages.
