Nice to know when you are searching for rental housing in Spain
Spain is difficult to describe in a broad sense, as the country is very diverse in both landscaping, culture, food and traditions. It has everything you could ask for in a single country; long summers, rich past with ancient architecture and last but not least the southern European tendency to always find a way to incorporate pleasure or leisure into the gray everyday. This amongst other things attracts millions of tourists every year from all over the world to Spain, but especially from the countries further north in Europe.
Apart from being a focal point of culture, types of landscapes and cuisine, Spain is the fourth largest country in Europe and the biggest southern European country of 47,450,795 inhabitants (2020 census). It’s located on the Iberial peninsula, bordering Portugal, the Mediterranean sea and France. It’s said that the first humans arrived to the Iberian peninsula over 42,000 years ago, which means Spain has a rich past and history under many different reigns and rules like the Roman Empire, the Visigothic Kingdom and many more. At the moment however they are under the rule of The Spanish Kingdom, which is defined as both a constitutional monarchy and a secular parliamentary democracy.
Spain is parted into 17 different Autonomous communities which all vary in landscape, culture, traditions etc. Some of them are defined as regions, and others as nationalities, as the Spaniards generally feel more connected to the local area in terms of traditions and culture than the country as a whole.
The capital of Spain is called Madrid, and is located almost exactly in the middle of the country in the region called the Community of Madrid. Many people travel here because of the busy city-life as well as great job opportunities in both new and more mature businesses.
The most populous state is called Andalusia and is located in the very south of the country. Most of the tourists gather here to enjoy the sun-filled days in the warm tempered sea.
A lot of people visit the city of Barcelona as well though, which is located in the region of Catalonia. In fact around 8 million international tourists traveled to Barcelona in 2018, to experience the many sights of the city. Barcelona is known to be Spain’s center of architecture and art in general. There are many beautiful relics of the past in the form of architecture and art in Spain in general, and you won’t be able to go far until you meet yet another old cathedral or church kept intact since the 1700’s and onwards.
If you are considering moving to Spain, and the tourism scares you, there are plenty of housing options in the smaller regions and towns, where you’ll be welcomed with open arms by the locals. The Spaniards are known as a very open people, and love it when you try to speak their language, cook their food and are curious of their traditions and culture in general.
