Celtiberian Range (in Spanish language: Serranía Celtibérica), also called South Lapland or Spanish Lapland (Laponia del Sur or Laponia Española), is the geographical term given to a small part of Spain due to its lower population and lack of infrastructure.[1]

Its nomenclature comes from the Celtiberians, a pre-Roman tribe who lived in this area long ago.
