As Valentine's Day approaches, The Local takes a look at some of the most romantic Spanish love stories throughout history.

While they might not be quite as passionate as the Italians or rival the French for romance,  some of the greatest love stories in history have played out in Spain. 

From a pair of 600-year-old sovereigns who united the country and took over half the world to a new king and queen bringing a fresh, modern face to the Bourbon dynasty, the Spanish royals alone have provided their fair share of power couples. But it doesn´t stop there. 

From literary bromances to Hollywood love stories, The Local presents some of the greatest Spanish romances in history.
