Abstract : During the years (1963-1964) the research group of the Spanish Seismological Survey (SSS), Instituto Geografico y Catastral, Madrid carried out several seismological studies on the area 10 deg W-5 deg E, 35 deg-44 deg N. These studies correspond to the first part of a plan in course which intends to achieve a better knowledge of the seismic and structural characteristics of the said area. The investigations developed include: (a) local recording conditions; (b) standardization of calibration procedures; (c) crustal structure and; (d) seismic activity. All these studies have been published in 12 papers which represent the first contribution to a general seismic study of this area. The present paper analyzes the main results searching possible interrelations and indicating some suggested problems of interest from our point of view. (Author)
