Happy Spanish Day

Yesterday, October 12th, we celebrated National Spanish Day, commemorating the discovery of America in 1492 by Christopher Columbus (in representation of Catholic Monarchs of Spain). It’s not well known the origin of this navigator, but he is essential in Spanish history because from that moment, the Golden Age of Spain started- the Spanish Empire. Spain became the most powerful nation in the world, reaching the territorial pinnacle at the end of 18th century.

Later, the state started to lose all of its lands and with that, also its power. It’s necessary to say that Spain was never characterized by its good political leaders and this stays the same today.

Despite everything, yesterday was a day to be proud of Spain, just because it’s our home. And above all else (flags, frontiers and ideologies) it’s a day to be proud of being a world citizen🙂
