Spanish is indeed one of the most romantic languages in the world next to French and Italian. Around 75% of the whole language is heavily based on Latin which is known as the language of the Roman empire. It is considered widely spoken among all the other romance languages since it is estimated that around 400 million people are constantly speaking and learning about it.
What sets it apart is the fact that it has spread across continents to the point that has even influenced some Asian languages. I guess one of the reasons why it remains has such popularity is that each word and phrase somehow reflects not just a "meaning" but a whole culture as well! In fact, it holds a rich number of words for expressing different shades of meaning (and it just keeps on growing!).
