As a direct consequence of Islamic invasion in 711 and subsequent Reconquista, current genetic distribution in Spain coincides with the territoriality of medieval Spanish kingdoms and with Christian repopulation routes.

The new study shows that North African input is about 0% in Basques, very low in eastern Spain near the Pyrenees, and increases to around 11% in Portugal and neighboring regions in Spain.

Well, Basques aren't ethnic Spaniards, so I think it's safe to say the average Spaniard is about 8% North African.

I've heard that Basques were considered some type of "genetic aristocracy" among the Spaniards during the Reconquista.

They aren't ethnic Spaniards, but still live within Spain's borders and because of that they tend to be grouped with Spaniards.

I have been to Portugal. And people and some people look close to north Africans.
