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 and the Kingdom of León, 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 some parts of Salamanca the Leonese langauge, "llïonés", is also spoken by a little minority, along with Galician. In [[Trevino|Treviño]] (Burgos province) Basque is still preserved.
