Nevermind that the independent state of Portugal existed much before the de facto creation of Spain (1128 vs 1492).

For those who defend Spain as an unidad de destino, the spirit of the nation goes back to Atapuerca and Altamira. Big Grin

I mean, if they hate Catalanism so much, why aren't themselves the first to demand secession?

Macho attitude. Derecho de conquista. 20% of the country's GDP and main touristic place after the Balearic Islands.

According to them, Catalonia has always been Spanish. Or even funnier, now some of them say that Catalonia has never existed. Taking our traditional invisibility in Europe to unsuspected levels: we're ghosts now. Big Grin

It's the logical thing. If the Aranese wanted to vote whether they want to remain within Catalonia or not, much as I like that valley, I'll let them decide about their own future too.
