Santander, Cantabria
Northern Spain

Cantabria está situada en la cornisa Cantábrica, nombre dado a la franja de tierra existente entre el mar Cantábrico y la cordillera Cantábrica, en el norte de la Península Ibérica. Posee un clima oceánico húmedo y de temperaturas moderadas, fuertemente influenciado por los vientos del océano Atlántico que chocan contra las montañas. La precipitación media es de 1.200 mm, lo que permite el crecimiento de frondosa vegetación. Su mayor elevación se localiza en el pico de Torre Blanca (2.619 metros). Cantabria es la región más rica del mundo en yacimientos arqueológicos del Paleolítico Superior, aunque los primeros signos de ocupación humana datan del Paleolítico Inferior. Destacan en este aspecto las pinturas de la cueva de Altamira, datada entre el 16.000 y 9.000 a. de C. y declarada, junto a otras nueve cuevas cántabras más, Patrimonio de la Humanidad por la Unesco.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
