Arts

Architecture, music, theatre, literature, painting, cinema… the arts have always had a prominent role to play in Spain. The Golden Age was a particularly fertile period for fiction, the plastic arts and architecture. Subsequently, the generations of 1898 and 1927 succeeded in breathing new air into Spanish culture which was reflected in masterpieces of fiction, play-writing and the seventh art. Nowadays, the talent of our artists ensures the survival of the arts in Spain and their influence in the world.

Throughout history, Spain has produced hugely talented authors who have left their mark on the history of literature.
