Chronology time zones Spain

Before January 1, 1901, the official time of Spain was the Meridian of Madrid (3º 41'West), although each province had the local time corresponding to its Meridian, (the local time, was equal to the local length) .

On January 1, 1901, at 0h. the Greenwich Mean Time is adopted 0º UTC 0h. or (GMT 0h.), consequently Local Time (HL) corresponded to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) or Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

On April 15, 1918, DST (Daylight Saving Time) was introduced for the first time, advancing the clock by 1 hour, so that in the summer time, the Coordinated Universal Time UTC + 1h was used with respect to the meridian of Greenwich 0º,

On March 16, 1940 at 11pm. the time of the 15º East Meridian UTC + 1h. or (GMT + 1h.) is adopted, so 1h is established of permanent advance with respect to (UTC) Coordinated Universal Time or the 0º Meridian (GMT), and 2h. in summer time UTC + 2h.

In 1981 it is established that the time change begins on the last Sunday of March at 2:00. A.M. (+1 h.), and end on the last Sunday of September at 3:00. A.M. (-1 h.) In 1996, the month in which it ends, changes and happens to be in October instead of September.
