Geographic Information on Spain

Geographic Information on Spain
With the gorgeous coastlines, mountain views, spectacular islands and warm temperate climate, Spain has a diverse geography perfect for anyone ready to get out and explore the outdoors.


Spain is located in southwestern Europe at latitude 40.00⁰N, longitude 4.00⁰W. Because of the three separate bodies of water providing the borders, Spain is a peninsula.


While the climate of Spain is temperate, there are noticeable differences in temperature and cloud cover in the coastal areas where the weather is not as extreme, providing for cooler summers and warmer winters than that of the interior.


When visiting Spain you will see a diverse terrain full of plains, plateaus and mountains. The highest mountain is the Pico de Aneto, located in the Pyrenees Mountains that separate Spain from France.

Bodies of Water

The waters of Spain are as diverse and robust as the terrain surrounded by the Bay of Biscay, Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, Spain also has many rivers, such as the Ebro.


If the beauty of the mainland of Spain is not enough for you, there are the beautiful Canary and Balearic Islands, just off the coast.
