What is the difference between a spanish guitar and a normal acoustic?

I thought the spanish guitar had a smaller hole in it, yet when i search on ebay for them, they all just look like normal acoustic guitars, am i missing something here? Maybe the guitar im thinking of is called something different?
Any help much appreciated, cheers.

Chosen Answer:

A Spanish guitar typical has nylon strings and has a smaller body and an acoustic guitar usually has steel strings and a larger body.

    maybe you search for flamenco guitar. just my thought. you can find about it on the internet. there’s tons of it. one from wikipedia said that
    The traditional flamenco guitar is made of Spanish cypress and spruce, which accounts for its characteristic body color, and is lighter in weight and a bit smaller than a classical guitar, to give the sound a “brighter” and percussive quality. Volume has traditionally been very important in flamenco construction, as guitarists needed to be heard over the sound of the dancers’ nailed shoes.

    A Classical(Spanish guitar) has a few differences from a standard dreadnought steel string guitar. A classical has nylon strings, a wider neck, and usually at the headstock the machine heads will run across the guitar horizontally instead of vertically.
