No, you can stay up to 90 days without a visa.

Check this website for info:

Here's a quote from the section on Spain and Andorra:

ENTRY/EXIT REQUIREMENTS: A passport is required for both countries. U.S. citizens can stay without a visa for a tourist/business stay of up to 90 days.

So, looks like you're OK (I was in Spain for over 40 days, and I was good to go without a Visa - although I'd recommend bringing a Visa credit card that you can use for cash advances...) :arrow:
