The diverse and rich fields are included in modern Spanish culture. Thus, it is virtually impossible to cover the culture of the entire country for a certain period of time. The existing Spanish culture emanates from the dominant position of that country more than a thousand years ago. The culture of these people is marked by ancient castles, ruins, language, festivals, art and music. Stanton notes that Spain is a country that is strictly abiding by its traditions. People in Spain have pledged allegiance to the region in which they travel more than their national government (1). Cultural diversity exists in the country, and this diversity is based on the autonomous regions, which are the foundation of Spain. Every Spanish culture has a spectacular personality created on the basis of human characters. However, there will be a holiday in the country or region as a whole. The purpose of this study is to reveal the different customs that the Spanish culture represents
Spain remains a strong Catholic State for some time. Christianity was commissioned by the Romans in Spain. The Baptism continued until the Romans were captured by Muslims from northern Africa. Nevertheless, the Christian rebels have won, and they have expelled the Muslims from Spain. Spain ruled King Ferdinand from 1400 to 1500. At that time he ordered the Spanish to convert them into Roman Catholics (Lior and Steele 6). Consequently, other religious groups were forced to adapt to Catholicism, but others chose to leave the country. More than 97 per cent of the Spaniards are still Roman Catholics, although non-Catholics are allowed to openly profess any religion. Nevertheless, all Spaniards, regardless of their religion, live in the Catholic environment or in the environment. This includes temples, churches and the artistic heritage referred to by religion. The national culture of the Spanish language is based on the Catholic environment. Therefore, visitors and citizens must understand this environment. The saints will be honoring the Christians who go on the pilgrimage, which entails their statues. As an example, the statue of Maria brings luck
Festivals or fiestes are usually stored by the Spaniards. They may be secular or religious. They are held every year in urban settlements and in rural areas. Businesses usually get caught in the fiesta, and people take part in the dance and eat all night. Besides, the servants call each other
Spain as a nation started with early small tribal groups during Roman times. Other social and cultural progressions have arisen as a result of the presence of the Romans. Usually, the Spaniards lived in a dense cluster. The concentration of these structures has led to the emergence of urban centres. In Spain, most rural areas consist of shops, houses, churches, schools, pastures and gardens. Settlement types are associated with a locale. Most of the houses in rural areas are traditionally built and are both human and animal. This is not the preferred settlement for the majority of the Spaniards
In areas with dispersed population centres, people are mainly engaged in animal husbandry and mixed cultivation. However, most of the Spaniards hate those who live in isolation. In rural areas, people have several family and family villages. The most preferred building materials are construction materials, bricks and wood. Most of the cities of Spain, including Valencia, Barcelona and Madrid, are attracted to the rural population. Every inhabitant of the village would like to live in cities, since there are services and opportunities available. Monuments and palaces are located far from rural homes and represent the Spanish architecture. This country is proud to have an effective Islamic architecture, which includes Alhambra, found in Granada and Great Mosque, located in Córdoba
The Spaniards ‘ traditional food was formed during the period of the agrarian revolution. They remain general
The food and the food are the common way the Spaniards spend time together. This usually occurs during special events and every day. Christmas and Easter refer to common religious events uniting friends and family. Weddings and birthdays are also an excellent opportunity for people to eat together. People also gather in social groups during leisure time, and they get drinks and products together. There are also tables that are observed in Spanish culture. Hosts are allowed to be the first to eat. The guests were included in the landmarks before they were served
Individuals define the social classes to which they belong. There are three classes in Spain. These include the lower, middle, and upper classes. Families with members who can afford to hire a babysitter who have been looking after the children when they go to work, belong to the upper social class. They are represented by large landlords with expensive furniture. Families that send children to public or private schools do not have the same social class as the families in the upper class. Families whose members are labour-intensive with children who attend State schools belong to a lower social class. Most families with a lower social class cannot afford to hire a babysitter. They also face the need to meet their needs
Professions and professions also illustrate social stratification. However, there is an interaction between social classes. People interact in bars and hotels, regardless of the social class they belong to. In addition to family inheritance, education provides a platform for social development. In urban and rural settlements there are differences that create differences in society. In Spain, farming was an autonomous trade, although it was not important. As such, merchants and farmers living in rural Spain belong to a lower status. The material at the exhibition is social stratification. These include jewellery, leisure, clothing and home. There is a wide gap between the poor and the rich at the economic level in Spain. There is a class for the royal family of Spain. Despite the country’s desire to achieve equality, there are groups that are discriminated against on the basis of tribal and gender equality. Spanish women continue to face sexual harassment and low wages
Spain’s national identity has been acquired when Christians have chosen to unite in the fight against Islam. The parliamentary monarchy is governed by Spain, and it includes a bicameral legislature. The state will be headed by the monarch, who performs the duties of electing a head of government (Hay 104). Absolute power is vested in the King. Ever since Franco died, the state was headed by the King. It also promotes order in the Government. The Government is headed by the Prime Minister of the majority party. Many parties can participate in elections
Political dismissal in Spain is almost unheard. This is due to the fact that people see the resignation as a serious political weakness because parliamentary democracy was supported in this country after Franco’s death in 1975. Until then, Spain had a dictator’s style. From 1923 until 1931, the political model developed by Primo de Riviera was used for Spain’s rule. This leader was linked to the modernization of Spain (Magone 9). In fact, this political system is fighting for workers ‘ rights, and it was something rare in the kingdom, ruled by dictatorship. More optimism is taking place with the second Republic, because it has led to secession of the state from the church since it restricted Catholicism. The age of the opposition, which led to the civil war. General Franco was the revolt. Franco also established a totalitarian state that aimed to destroy the enemies
Spain has influenced the Portuguese experience, which makes it democratic. This led to the smooth succession of Juan Carlos I of Franco (Magone 15). The free market replaced the system of protectionism that had been practiced in Franco. Modern Spain is politically organized in 17 “autonomous regions” as well as in 50 provinces. In Spain, leadership is considered a human achievement. It is supported by family ties. Membership in a party depends on the Government’s ability to provide employment to citizens. Responsibility for the protection of villages lies under the informal control of society. Military officers of the highest class in society, although people join the army voluntarily. Young people have the right to establish social groups in their villages on the basis of their age
In Spain, the family is a very important institution for both women and men. A family is even critical than work, because it promotes community rather than individualism. The roles are common to Spaniards on the basis of social status and gender. Traditional gender contracts are the main women’s role in the centre of the family. On the other hand, men are breadwinners (Calvo-Salguero, Martínez-de-Lecea and Aguilar-Luzon 122). Agriculture is the main activity in rural areas. Men play the most difficult tasks, and women are involved in work in the home and in the gardens. Women and men can perform any task in the field of professional farming and herding
The responsibility for the management of domestic economies and the upbringing of children lies with the couple. Women and men in Spain are allowed to participate in leisure activities even in public places. Culture allows men to practise politics in public life, while religious activities are respected both by women and children in their homes. Old women servants mainly provide assistance in the economy. Culture portraits women as housewives. However, women were allowed to work in modern culture, and they also worked in different professions. Women are also involved in politics. Inheritance of property is permitted by the law of the law and they may also dispose of their property if they do not want to do so (Coolidge 41). Equal distribution of inheritance is also permitted by law among family members irrespective of sex. Women retain their names in most regions even after marriage. For royal women, if there is not a single brother in their family, inheritance of titles in the family is permitted
The Spanish culture requires marriage to be a partnership in which the contribution of each partner is important. Own property has traditionally been vitally important than love during the trial. It is not permitted for persons to join a court in connection with long and discharged marriages. Women who are unable to have children because of their age and divorce are women who have not reached the age of majority. However, weddings and customs are considered special events, and they attract a large number of guests. Gender culture is a feature of the relationship between Spain and the family, as well as individualism (alvo-Salguero, Martínez-de-Lecea and Aguilar-Luzon 121). Families show a culture of collectivism that gives meaning to life, ensuring prosperity and personal happiness. Work is not considered a culture and an independent aspect in the family, and the time of work cannot compete with family time. In Spain, the family’s attitude to life is positive. Education of children is encouraged for children so that they can be successful in life
After the Roman conquest, the Latin language was created. This has resulted in the appearance of the languages of the Ibary language. The language most used in Spain is Spanish Castilian. This is mainly used in courts, offices and schools. The art is highly appreciated by the Spaniards. They regularly visit architectural monuments and art museums to admire the artefacts. Most Spanish artists are regarded as celebrito. In universities and professional academies, the humansciences and the visual arts are highly valuable. Decorative arts are an important aspect of the national heritage in Spain. They are represented in museums in Spain, as well as in other regions of the world. There are strong architectures developed by Spaniards for painting and sculpture. Their treatment and designs are similar to national or regional identities
Musical instruments, dances and songs are taken in a unique way in the Andalusia region. The impression is that the creation of musical expressions is completely different from resistance and hierarchy. Flamenco is a dance type whose characteristic is to clap and stomp on the hands. This dance involves playing guitar and dancing emotions. Movies are also fond of Spaniards, and a lot of time is allocated to them by cultural analysts, who spend time studying the film industry in Spain. Football loves many Spaniards, and they go to the fields to watch their teams play. There are clubs where FC Barcelona membership is passed down the tree of generations
The Spanish culture continues to appreciate the ancient Spanish customs, although they have been transformed with modern technology and novelty. Romans influenced this culture. Roman Catholicism is the basis of most Spanish customs. Historically, the family in Spain pays great attention to the relationship, because the community has been valued than individualism. This is illustrated by how people leave jobs to dine with their families. Sisters and brothers use the inherited properties the same. There is a wide gap between the lower and upper social classes, but there are free interactions among people in these classes during public events. The works of art and ornaments are valuable to the Spanish people, as they are important aspects of their national heritage. People leave their actions only for public holidays. There are different cultures, because in the autonomous regions of Spain and in all cultures there is a unique identifier that is created on the basis of their attributes, but they differ in the country or in the whole region
