A sociopolitical region of Europe including such countries as Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Albania and Bulgaria.

The term southern Europe, at its most general definition, is used to mean 'all countries in the south of Europe'. However, the concept, at different times, has had different meanings, providing additional political, linguistic and cultural context to the definition in addition to the typical geographical, phytogeographic or climatic approach. Most southern European countries border the Mediterranean Sea.
