Embassy of Spain in Mexico City

The Embassy of Spain in Mexico City is the seat of Spain’s diplomatic mission to Mexico. The two countries have shared a contentious and long history. Today, it’s celebrated for more than 40 years of peaceful cooperation, even while the difficult past is still turned over and evaluated by scholars in both countries, and in others.

The embassy building was the property of the Government of the Spanish Republic in exile during the 1930s. In 1977, Spain handed the building over to the Mexican government. Mexico in turn turned the building over to representatives of King Juan Carlos I of Spain. It’s been used as the  Spanish embassy since then.

The two countries had shared no diplomatic relations between 1939 and 1977. In that year, both countries opened embassies in their respective capitals. Since then, the two countries have signed numerous bilateral agreements, in addition to those that include Spain as a member of the European Union.

For international visitors, the Casa de la Cultura de España in the City Center develops programs directly connected with enhancing and better understanding the long and deep relationship. The Casa de Cultura very often works closely with the Spanish Embassy. But the relationship, as these pages hope to make clear, long precedes the tumultuous events of the 20th century.

Consular services for Spanish citizens are available here, and at consulates in Guadalajara and Monterrey.
