(Persia Digest) – The Iranian Ambassador to Spain has said that Iran issues visas for tourists in a minimum amount of time, including Spaniards.

After the opening last week of the biggest joint event between Iran and Spain in the past 400 years called "Iran - The cradle of civilization" exhibition in the most prestigious European archeology museum in Alicante, Valencia, the issuance of visas for Spanish tourists has now been facilitated too.

"Iran - The cradle of civilization" exhibition opened at the Alicante Museum last week, showcasing 196 artefacts from sixty excavation sites in Iran. It will be open to the public until October 2019. The artefacts displayed here date from over 200 thousand years ago (an item from a cave in Guilan Province) to the Safavid period.
