In order to extract climate data from Copernicus, there's the Sub-region extraction section that allows one to extract data from a region within specific coordinate limits.

I am wondering how should one do to find the latitude and longitude limits for a specific sub-region, given the name of that region.

Taking the Iberian Peninsula as an example, what should one do in order to find its North, South, East and West limits?

In the absence of a better method, I have used Google Maps.

Then, in order to find out the limits for that specific region, in this case, the Iberian Peninsula, I have selected specific regions in the map by clicking once on top of a specific place and a pop-up with coordinates appear, as one can see in the image bellow.

In the process one will need to go through a variety of decisions, when defining those limits. In my case, I haven't considered islands.
