  • Overview

    General Description
    In this subject our aim is to offer a general view of the History of Spain. We would study the most
    important political, economical, social and cultural aspects of Spanish History. We would start
    analysing Prehistory and Ancient History in the Iberian Peninsula. We would continue with the
    fallen of the Roman Empire, the Visigoth Kingdom, Al-Andalus, the ?Reconquista?, the Catholic
    Kings and the Habsburg dynasty, the crisis of Spanish empire and the Bourbon Reformism. We
    would learn as well about late Spanish modern history: we would study the Ancient Regime Crisis,
    the Liberal Revolution, the Restoration, the Primo de Rivera Dictatorship, the II Republic, the Civil
    War, Francoism and, of course, the Transition to Democracy.
