Iberia refers to the Iberian Peninsula which is made up of Spain, Portugal and Gibraltar. Found in the extreme southwest region of Europe, it is considered the western and southernmost of all the three peninsulas in southern Europe (the Italian, Iberian and Balkan peninsulas). Portugal occupies much of the western region of the peninsula while Spain takes up the largest part of the peninsula. The islands of Spain and Portugal are not included in the Iberian Peninsula. It includes the microstate of Andorra, found on the northern end in the Pyrenees just between Spain and France. Gibraltar, which borders Spain, is a small British overseas territory. The region has a rich culture and wild life. Estimates show that it has been inhabited for a minimum of 500,000 years. Early settlers were some separate tribes that have been given the generic name of Iberians.
