Spain first participated at the Olympic Games in 1900, and has sent athletes to compete in most Summer Olympic Games since 1920. Spain has also participated in every Winter Olympic Games since 1936.

Spain boycotted the 1936 Summer Olympics in Nazi Germany, and also boycotted the 1956 Games in Melbourne because of the Soviet Union's invasion of Hungary. The equestrian events in 1956 were held five months earlier in Stockholm, and Spain did participate in those events.

Spain hosted the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, the home city of then-president of the International Olympic Committee, Juan Antonio Samaranch.

Spanish athletes have won a total of 115 medals, with sailing as the top medal-producing sport. Two of those medals were won at the Winter Games.

The Spanish Olympic Committee (Comité Olímpico Español) was created in 1924.
