Aragón is an autonomous community of Spain, resulting from the historical kingdom of the same name that includes the central stretch of the Ebro valley, the central Pyrenees and the Iberian Sierras.
It is located in the north of Spain, and borders on the west with the autonomous communities of Castilla-La Mancha, Castilla y León, La Rioja, Navarra and on the east with Catalonia and the Valencian Community.
It is defined in its Statute of autonomy as historical nationality.
The Kingdom of Aragon, along with the Principality of Catalonia, the Kingdom of Valencia, the Kingdom of Majorca and other territories of France, Italy and Greece formed for centuries the historic Crown of Aragon.
Since 1978 is a Spanish autonomous community, composed of the provinces of Huesca, Teruel and Zaragoza, and which is divided into 32 counties and 1 county delimitation.
Its capital is the city of Zaragoza. On April 23 is celebrated the feast of San Jorge, day of Aragon.
Aragón counted, at the beginning of 2016, with 1,308,563 inhabitants, which places it in the eleventh position of the Spanish communities in terms of population, despite being the fourth by extension with 47 719 km².
This difference is due to the fact that it is also one of the four communities with the lowest population density.
It should be noted that half of the Aragonese population is concentrated in the city of Zaragoza.
