Those who visit Spain find that the country was greatly influenced by some of the ancient civilizations like Greeks, Romans and Moors before being taken over by Christian rulers. In fact, even to this day, in many places people follow the religious practices of these civilizations. Interestingly, in spite of these diverse religious faiths and beliefs, people in Spain live in an atmosphere of harmony and understanding.
