A country full of different culture and life.
The Civil War in the late 1930's brought General Franco to power as dictator. He ruled the country until he died in 1975. Spain became a democracy after the death.

During the 50's and 60's, Spain took on a rapid stage of economic development and is now an industrial nation. Today more people work in construction and manufacturing than on farms.
