About Spain:

Situated in the very west of Europe and sharing the Iberia peninsula with its neighbour Portugal, Spain is a country with a huge variety and quantity of rock and climbing routes. You can not only find sport rock climbing routes but also alpine climbing in the Pyrenees and in other mountain ranges such as Picos de Europa. As in other European countries, Spain is characterized by four seasons climatically. However, the climatic conditions can be quite different in different parts of the country. There are humid areas near the Atlantic, high areas in that you will find alpine conditions all year and almost desert like conditions such as in northern Africa.

Situada muy al oeste europeo, y compartiendo la peninsula iberica con su vecino Portugal, España es un país con una enorme variedad y cantidad de roca y escuelas de escalada, dsiputandose en cuanto a esto, los primeros lugares en el planeta, ademas de poseer una larga y acentuada tradición en cuanto a escalada y alpinismo se refiere. Ademas del potencial rocoso que aca tenemos, destaca tambien el abundante terreno alpino, como lo es el conocido Pirineo, y otras cordilleras alo largo del pais. Este país como todos sus vecinos europeos presenta las 4 estaciones climaticas, aunque dependiendo de la zona podemos econtrar marcadas diferencias climaticas: desde lluviosas regiones expuestas a los caprichos del oceano Atlantico, zonas con condiciones de alta montaña casi permanentes durante todo el año, y hasta torrridos lugares muy cercanos al continente africano. La división politico territorial española es muy sencilla y generosa a la hora de ubicarnos dentro del mapa; el país se divide en comunidades autonomicas y estas a su vez en provincias. Cada comunidad contiene un legado cultural grandisimo, y una marcada identidad propia, de la cual sus habitantes hacen gran gala.
