Transcript of Spain

SPAIN The Spanish culture is made up mostly of Roman Catholics. Even if people have never been to a church in their entire life,
they almost automatically identify themselves as Catholics
because - as a Spaniard - it's practically a given. Wherever you travel throughout the country, you will find a church or large cathedral. RELIGION: FOOD: The two main ingredients to Spanish cooking are olive oil and garlic. Ham, or as the Spanish say it, jamón, is a very prized dish. Some other common Spanish specialties are paella, tortilla de patatas, chorizo, and gazpacho (My personal favorite). Gazpacho is a cold soup made entirely of vegatables and garnished with pieces of hard-boiled eggs and dried bread. By: Dylan Davis Architchture The Spanish have very detailed and intricate
carvings on almost every structure. A lot of their structures have been around for thousands of years! For example, the aqueduct in Segovia has been standing since about 1st Century A.D.! Spain has beautiful mountains, and some houses are even built on their amazing mountainsides. Those mountains are a geographic interest. Things To Do Some cool España Places To Visit Some amazing places to visit in Spain are Toledo and Plaza de España. Toledo has a giant wall overlooking an entire city in Spain. Plaza de España is a landmark example of the Renaissance Revival style in Spanish architecture. Plaza de España is located in Sevilla. Bullfighting Bullfighting is a very big attraction in Spain.
It can trace its origin all the way back to 711 A.D. as a celebration when King Alfonso VII was crowned.It is said that the total number of Spaniards watching a bullfight is over one million every year. Castles In Spain Spain has been famous for its castles since its foundation. The Spaniards built the castles mainly for a defensive purpose, but some as noble residencies. As seen in the picture, most castles in Spain are very large. Festivities La Feria is the most famous festival in Spain. It is a week long of flamenco dancing, eating, drinking, and socializing. There are bullfights every day during that week. Most people will stay up very late, maybe even all night. Another big event is the "Running of the Bulls". All of the shop windows are boarded up, then the bulls are released and go stampeding down the street amongst thousands of people trying to run for their lives. Many people are often badly injured during this event.

All of her cousins, uncles and aunts still live in Spain. When I traveled there in 2006, I visited all of my relatives. My grandparents were born and raised there, so they still carry out some Spanish traditions such as celebrating the holidays and making the food for us when we visit their house. My grandma is famous for her gazpacho, and my grandpa makes the best cooked ham. I wish I could go back and visit Spain with them again. I am proud of my Spanish heritage and doing this project has helped me to learn a lot about it.
