Abstract:

The border between Spain and Portugal, known for centuries under the name of La Raya, appeared gradually during the Middle Ages, when the Kingdom of Portugal and other countries on the peninsula defined their sovereignty. This process developed throughout the Middle Ages up to the beginning of the Modern Times. Even today, despite several contracts, which eliminate restrictions between the two countries, discrepancies in sovereignty and legitimacy are common at some parts of the Spanish-Portugal border. After the accession of Portugal and Spain to the Schengen Agreement (25 June 1991) the situation at the border started changing.
