I appreciate that use of these data is acknowledged including a link to my main mountain page.

There are 8 Ultras in Spain, however 4 of these are on the Canary Islands.
There are 34 peaks having at least 1000 meter of prominence,
of which 6 are islands and 2 are on the border with France.
Thus the 50 finest on continental Spain would be reached after peak number 56 on this list, while the 50 finest located completely inside Spain are within the 58 first peaks on this list.

Two stars behind the rank means that I have climbed it (8/50).
