Iberia, in its most common meaning, refers to the Iberian peninsula in southwestern Europe, containing the countries of Spain, Portugal, Andorra, the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar and southern parts of France (Pyrénées-Orientales). In history, the same name was also used for an area in the Caucasus more or less identical with modern Georgia.
