This work reviews the current situation of earthquake‐triggered landslide studies in Spain both from the point of view of regional assessment and site‐specific cases. Regional assessments have been undertaken in areas of the Betic Cordillera (South and Southeast Spain): Alcoy Basin, Lorca Basin, Granada Basin and Sierra Nevada Range; and Central Pyrenees (North Spain and Andorra). Specific studies are very scarce, outstanding those related to the Güevéjar landslide (Granada) –triggered by 1755 Lisbon and 1884 Arenas del Rey earthquakes, and to a remarkable rock‐slide triggered by 2005 La Paca earthquake (Murcia). Future research lines are appointed, as well as potential applications on Civil Protection and Seismic Hazard Assessment.
