Peninsula (from the Latin pæne, almost and insula, island) is a geological formation consisting of an expanse of land that is surrounded by water on almost all sides, except for the portion of land that connects it with the larger region, called the isthmus. For example, the Iberian Peninsula is said to refer to the region consisting of Spain and Portugal, connected to Europe by the Pyrenees. A peninsula can also be said to be an arm of land that juts out into the sea, connecting to the rest of the continent by the isthmus.
This beautiful place allows the traveler to enjoy a unique landscape. More than words, the images.
