When people talk about 'Michelin Star Restaurants in Spain', they are generally speaking talking about three-star restaurants. Michellin gives out a large number of Michelin stars each year, but it is the three-star restaurants that capture the imagination.
When it comes to the total number of Michelin Star restaurants in Spain, the exact figure isn't released by Michelin - you'd have to buy the guide and count them all up yourself!
