The Spanish monarchy became the most powerful European country notably thanks to its immense colonial empire. Progressively weakened, Spain lost its colonies, the Bourbon monarchy was overturned, the first republic saw the light of day in the beginning of the 20th century. The Spanish popular front won the elections in 1936 but the civil war started and General Franco took over in 1939. Spain then experienced 36 years of dictatorship till the death of the Caudillo in 1975. Juan Carlos I came to power, reinstated democracy and the country experienced a true economic miracle.

Today, Spain is finding it difficult to recover from the 2008 crisis, but tourism is an ever-expanding sector.
