Spanish roof tiles have a long history that dates back centuries. The use of clay tiles in roofing is a traditional practice in many Mediterranean and Spanish-influenced regions. The exact age of Spanish roof tiles, or clay tiles in general, can vary depending on the specific region and the historical context.

Clay tiles have been used for roofing purposes for thousands of years, with evidence of their use dating back to ancient civilizations such as the Greeks and Romans. In Spain, the Moors also played a significant role in the development and use of clay tiles in architecture during their rule from the 8th to the 15th centuries.
