There were no Armenian churches in Spain, until one was opened in a small town near Barcelona in August 2009. Most Armenians in Spain belong to the Armenian Apostolic Church. The number of Armenian Sunday schools in Spain is on the rise.
Most Spanish Armenians speak Armenian and Spanish. Much emigration from Armenia following dissolution of the Soviet Union has been directed to the EU, including Spain, along with Russia and the United States.
