    The typical image of a person from Spain (steryotype) is tanned/olive skin + dark hair; much akin to a Mexican (http://cdn.c.photoshelter.com/img-ge...zatlan-560.jpg).

    However how true is this steryotype? Do a lot of people in Spain look indistinguishable from people from paler European countries (e.g. England)?

    No... They look like English people (skin tone) or,maybe a bit more tanned.

    Many Mexican people are of Spanish ancestry.

    English Anglo-Saoxons people are pale; they don't usually have this type of skin tone - https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...annes_2011.jpg

    It could be regional; perhaps skin pigmentation differs from Southern to Northern Spain? I know this is the case for Italy.
