The Kingdom of Spain (in Spanish and Galician: Reino de Espa√Īa; in Catalan: Regne d'Espanya; in Basque: Espainiako Erresuma; in Occitan: Regne d'Espanha) is the larger of the two countries that make up the Iberian peninsula (the other is Portugal) located in south-western Europe.
To the west (and, in Galicia, south), it borders Portugal. To the south, it borders Gibraltar and, through its cities in North Africa (Ceuta and Melilla), Morocco.
To the north-east, along the Pyrenees mountain range, it borders France and the tiny principality of Andorra. It also includes the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea, the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean and a number of uninhabited islands on the Mediterranean side of the strait of Gibraltar, known as Plazas de soberan√≠a (places of sovereignty), such as the Chafarine islands, the "rocks" (pe√Īones) of V√©lez and Alhucemas, and the tiny Isla Perejil (disputed). In the North-east along the Pyrenees, a small enclave town called Ll√≠via in Catalonia is surrounded by French territory
Spain is the second most-visited tourism destination in the World. They welcome 52 million tourists per year, according to the World Tourism Organisation
