No. Only proper nouns are capitalized (as well as nouns that are the first words in sentences). There are also some nouns which are capitalized in English, but not in Spanish, such as the names of the months (e.g. enero, febrero, etc.), specific concepts that use mundane words (casa museo, plaza central, etc.), and adjectives that append proper nouns (la belísima Afrodita, el ilustrísimo Emperador Luís, etc.).
