Major landforms include the Andalusian Plain, Cantabrian Mountains, the Pyrenees, Maseta Central Plateau, Sistema Central Mountains, the Sierra de Guadalupe Mountains, and the Canary Islands as its shown in the physical map of Spain. The interior of Spain is a high, dry plateau surrounded and crisscrossed by mountain ranges. Rivers run to the coasts, creating good farmland. Still, the interior of the country gets very hot in summer and very cold and dry in the winter. Droughts are common.
Spain is the third biggest country in Europe and it has a land area of 194,845 squared miles, to fit the different regions. It also has a coast line that spans 3,000 miles. Most of the topography of Spain consists of flat plains that are surrounded by rugged, undeveloped hills as its mentioned in the physical map of Spain. The northern part of the country, however, is dominated by the Pyrenees Mountains. The highest point in Spain is located in the Canary Islands on Pico de Teide at 12,198 feet (3,718 meters) above sea level. The geographical features in Spain are different in many different ways compared to other countries.
Spain regions can be divided up into five different regions as you can see in the physical map of Spain. The five regions are green Spain, inland Spain, the Pyrenees, Southern Spain, and Mediterranean Spain. Green Spain is located in the north and northwest parts of Spain. Inland Spain has many plateaus but it also has a special one that is a giant plateau, it is called La Meseta. The Pyrenees has rivers, glacial lakes, and small plains.
