Buddhism is currently the fourth religious minority in Spain after Islam, and Evangelical and Orthodox Christianity, in a country where the majority consider themselves Catholic (over 70%) or non-religious (around 25%). Of the non-Abrahamic religions, it is the one that has had most impact despite the recent introduction of practice groups in Spain (from 1977). Moreover, Spanish Buddhist centres and monuments are particularly remarkable and include enormous stupas, monasteries and retreat centres of significance. The Buddhism in Spain is fast-growing and there are currently around 85,000 active followers at some three hundred centres or practice groups.
