There are so many things I love about Spain, especially its history. | Merie Weismiller Wallace - EFE -
The history of Spain, if not brutal at times, is fascinating. At one point the Spanish empire took in most of Europe not to mention parts of India, the Far East and South America until it all came crashing down like Britain’s. And tragically it was only a few generations ago that the country was locked in a bloody civil war, the victims of which are still being searched for and exhumed to this day as part of a law that recognises and broadens the rights and establishes measures in favour of those who suffered persecution or violence during the Civil War and the Franco dictatorship.
