Spain occupies most of the Iberian Peninsula. Spain is mountainous; some of the land is semi-desert and the country has a long coastline which borders the Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea. Its largest rivers are the Ebro, Duero, Guadalquivir, Guadiana and Tagus. The climate is varied, with snow in the mountains and extremes of heat and cold in the central region. Drought is a particular problem in many areas.
Madrid is the capital city. Other important cities are Barcelona, Cadiz, Cordoba, Granada and Valencia.
