Castilla y León is an autonomous community of Spain, the country's largest — in fact, it is the largest subnational political division in the European Union. It is formed by the union of two ancient kingdoms: Old Castile (Ávila, Burgos, Segovia and Soria) and the Kingdom of León (León, Zamora, Salamanca, Palencia and Valladolid), which were separated and reunited several times in the Middle Ages.


Spanish is the main language, everybody in Castile-Leon speak Spanish, but in the provinces of León, Zamora and Salamanca, Leonese is also spoken by a little minority.
