Spain is nowadays the result of 17 regions and there are 4 we cannot skip – Basque Country, Catalonia, Andalusia and Galicia – same country, different locations, different traditions and different dialects – Basque, Catalan, Galician and Castellano (also known as the regular Spanish and the official language of the country). Almost makes us think of Babel tower, right?
Leaving the differences apart there are some things by what Spain is known for and let’s begin by the people! Spain is home for both old and new artists in the different arts and fields!
Starting by the old, who never heard about Pablo Picasso and his cubism movement, Salvador Dali with his peculiar mustache and amazing surrealist paintings or Antonio Gaudi whose Sagrada Familia in Barcelona is still being built these days?
Nowadays the Spanish celebrities cross other paths as the cinema – Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas, the sports – Fernando Alonso and Rafael Nadal, the fashion – Paco Rabanne or the music – Julio and Enrique Iglesias.
But we can´t talk about Spain without talking about football! Spanish teams are known worldwide and for the Spanish football is a religion! Visiting the stadium of Real Madrid and Barcelona is often in the itineraries of people visiting these cities. The fact that Leonel Messi, although his origins are not Spanish, won 6 Ballon d’Or while playing in Spain, makes Barcelona FC fans super proud!
