Latin America: A Religious Mixture
Latin America is the group of countries in the Americas where primarily Spanish and Portuguese are spoken. It consists of 20 sovereign nations and several territories, which stretch from the northern border of Mexico to the southern tip of South America, including the Caribbean. It is almost 13% of the earth’s land surface area. As of 2015, its population was estimated at more than 626 million. The term “Latin America” was first used in 1861. About 80% of the population considers themselves Roman Catholics.
