    Europe’s top rights court on Tuesday ordered Spain to compensate two ETA members convicted of the 2006 bombing of Madrid Airport for the “inhuman and degrading treatment” they suffered in police custody. The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) did not, however, uphold the men’s claim that they had been tortured. Igor Portu and Martin Sarasola are serving life sentences over the bombing of the Terminal 4 car park at Madrid airport, which killed two people and injured around 50 others as part of ETA’s violent four-decade campaign for Basque independence. The pair claimed they were kicked and punched by...

    A 500-year-old secret code used in letters between one of Spain's most famous monarchs and a military commander has been cracked. Ferdinand of Aragon's letters have tantalised historians for centuries. Constructed using more than 200 special characters, they were deciphered by the country's intelligence agency. He was behind the final recapture - Reconquista - of Spain from the Moors in 1492 and Columbus's journeys to the Americas. The letters between Ferdinand and Gonzalo de Córdoba include instructions on strategy during military campaigns in Italy in the early 16th Century. They were written using secret code in case they fell into...

    The extinct three-horned palaeomerycid ruminant, Xenokeryx amidalae, found in Spain, may be from the same clade as giraffes, according to a study published December 2, 2015 in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Israel M. Sánchez from the Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales-CSIC, Madrid, Spain, and colleagues. Palaeomerycids, now extinct, were strange three-horned Eurasian Miocene ruminants known through fossils from Spain to China. In this article, the authors classify the palaeomerycid to their clade based on shared characteristics with the best-known species of the group and reassess their phylogenetic position among ruminants, which is currently disputed. The authors use well-preserved...

    A passenger on a delayed Ryanair flight from London who apparently got fed up waiting to get off a plane after it landed in the southern Spanish city of Malaga surprised fellow passengers by using the emergency exit to jump onto a wing. The incident on New Year's Day took place 30 minutes after the flight from Stansted Airport landed. The man, who has not been named but is said to be a non-Spanish citizen, was coaxed back onto the plane while police were called. Fellow passenger Fernando del Valle Villalobos, who videoed the incident, said he heard the man...

    Traditionalists are furious after it emerged that one of the “Three Wise Men” in the January 5th Epiphany parade would in fact be played by a drag queen. The January 5th Three Kings parades are a highlight of Spain's busy Christmas calendar and see the Three Wise Men, or Magi, parade through cities, towns and villages throughout the country distributing sweets to children. Once upon a time, the roles of “Los Reyes Magos” were played by local councillors, one of whom traditionally “blacked up” for the part of Balthazar. But in recent years, and since the arrival of a left-leaning...

    We live in Spain and yesterday we decided to spend the night in Malaga, about an hour from our house, so we watch their Christmas light displays. Besides the usual electric Christmas trees They have one large section of a neighborhood made up to look like a Cathedral. It's huge. Unlike the USA, Spaniards aren't afraid to put religious symbols on public property. The inside of the street cathedral had "stained glass windows" with nativity scenes. Even the traffic roundabouts have Nativity scenes in the middle. This is all through the town, which is why you can make a night...
