Culturally, Europe and Latin America don't seem to be very similar.

But Spain is definitely a part of Europe and a part of Hispanic world. Is Spanish culture the mix of European and Hispanic culture?

There is no such distinction between European and Hispanic culture. Spain is full part of Europe. The Hispanic culture would not exist without Spain. What you call Hispanic is only the Spanish-speaking Latin America, and its culture is, in its core, derived from that of Spain. What happens in Latin America is the influence of the native amerindian people, in higher or lower proportion depending on the country. Spaniards are not more distinct from Latin Americans than they are from Frenchmen or Italians.

How are you defining "Hispanic culture"?

If you had a good understanding of what "Hispanic culture" was you would not ask this question.

This is such an uninformed USA way of looking at the world.

I would suggest you read up on this topic(google it) then come back.

Hispanic? That is something American which is totally alien to Europe.

Spain is Spain, and it is one of the big players in Europe. Southern America is Southern America.

A Norwegian has more in common with a Spaniard than the Spaniard with the Peruvian.

Please, explain this. Spaniards and Peruvians speak the same language and most of both are catholic. Why are they culturally closer to Norwegians?

It makes no sense to me either. But only Spaniards can answer that.




The Portuguese are Europeans and some feel like Brazilians(south Americans) are our brothers. Norwegians on the other hand there is nothing there(no love or hate). The only ties are due to convenience.

I wouldn't be so sure. Brazilians are not very fond of Portugal and some Portuguese don't like Brazil, so...
