About the map

Spain World Map
Spain on a World Map

Spain is a country in Southwestern Europe. Its largest borders are with France and Andorra to the northeast and Portugal to the west. But because it’s a transcontinental country with territory in both Europe and Africa, it also shares a border with Morocco and a small 1.2 km (0.75 mi) border with Gibraltar.

Additionally, it’s situated along the Bay of Biscay to the north, the Balearic Sea to the east, and the Alboran Sea to the south. Spain is the fourth largest in size and fifth-most populous in Europe.

The country is known for having the third-highest number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites and its festivals like La Tomatina and the Running of the Bulls. Madrid is the capital and largest city of Spain. Other major cities are Barcelona, Valencia, and Seville. The country also has several large islands, such as the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands.
