It is easy to say Spain as the answer, but the area we now know as Spain has multiple languages, 4 of which are "official" languages of Spain. The Castillian language developed from Latin over the space of some 1,000 years following the collapse of the western Roman empire, and the occupation of the Iberian peninsula by the Moors. The area of north central Spain Known as Castile and Aragon were the mian drivers of the dialect that spead across the planet
Spanish came from the country of Spain.
