The earliest traces of human settlements in Spain dates back to thousands of years when it was inhabited by local tribes and migrants from nearby places. The discovery of ancient paintings in the Altamira Cave of Spain certainly proves the presence of prehistoric humans. However, it was in the Middle Ages when Spain started witnessing development in the name of culture, trade, education, politics, and tourism.
During the 2nd century BCE and 5th century CE, Spain was the part of the Roman Hispania. After the Western Roman Empire collapsed, the Gothic Hispania flourished. It ruled for a period of about three centuries and later on, surrendered to the Islamic and the Christian conquest, which happened between the 8th century and 15th century.
This was the time when Spain recorded exponential growth in terms of trade, politics, culture, and education. During this period, several wars between Muslims and Christians occurred too. Later on, during the early modern Spain years, the dynastic union of a Catholic monarch, expulsion of Jews and Muslims, the conquest of the Canary Islands and African expansion -everything happened to make Spain what it is in present times.
The country was also under the Bourbons in between the early 18th and early 19th centuries. In subsequent years, the Spanish wars of Independence and the rule of modern rulers led to the formation of numerous autonomous communities.
