As in every country, there are different ways to view the regions. The official way, is via the Communities.

Spain is divided up into a number of autonomous communities (see the map of Spain on the right), each with its own regional assembly, giving each one a certain amount of independence from the central government in Madrid. The amount of independence gives cause to many political arguments.

An alternative view might be to consider the regions by their commercial activities. The two powerhouses are Madrid, and Barcelona. Barcelona tends to attract the more 'arty' types of business. The north and west of Spain are wet, by comparison, so this differentiates it from the central areas, which tend to be drier and flatter. And of course, the coasts, or costas, attract holidaymakers.
