Modern humans arrived in the Iberian Peninsula (of which Spain is a part) 35,000 years ago. The area was ruled by the Romans. During the Middle Ages, Germanic tribes (the Visigoths) and the the Moors reigned.The last Moorish kingdom fell in the same year Columbus reached the Americas. A global empire began which saw Spain become the strongest kingdom in Europe, the leading world power for a century and a half, and the largest overseas empire for three centuries. (Wikipedia)
