Andalusian nationalism called Andalucismo in Spanish, is the name given to the political separatist movement in the Iberian Peninsula. It wants the Andalusia people to be recognized as a "nation". The main political party is the Andalusian Nationalists Party[2] but there are also smaller political groups supporting Andalusian nationalism, including Nación Andaluza and Asamblea Nacional de Andalucía.
