During the economic boom in Spain from 1959 to 1973, the city experienced unprecedented, extraordinary development in terms of population and wealth, becoming the largest GDP city in Spain, and ranking third in Western Europe. The municipality was extended, annexing neighbouring council districts, to achieve the present extension of 607 km2. The south of Madrid became very industrialised, and there were massive migrations from rural areas of Spain into the city. Madrid's newly built north-western districts became the home of the new thriving middle class that appeared as result of the 1960s Spanish economic boom, while the south-eastern periphery became an extensive working-class settlement, which was the base for an active cultural and political reform. #suspanish

Alcalá de Henares, meaning Citadel on the river Henares, is a Spanish city located 35 kilometres northeast of the country's capital, Madrid. It stands out for its rich archaeology and was one of the first bishoprics founded in Spain. Locally, it is generally known simply as "Alcalá", but "de Henares" is appended when needed to differentiate it from a dozen Spanish cities sharing the name Alcalá (from the Arabic word al-qal'a القلعة for fortification or citadel). The Latin name, Complutum, is sometimes used. The city is the capital of its namesake region, Comarca de Alcalá. Its historical centre is one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. #suspanish
Las Médulas is a historic gold mining site near the town of Ponferrada in the region of El Bierzo (province of León, Castile and León, Spain).

Advanced aerial surveys conducted in 2014 using LIDAR have confirmed the wide extent of the Roman-era works. #suspanish
Lo scimprorio si manifesta anche a Madrid 🏛Andiamo a cenare in un localino molto chic e la serata inizia subito bene con Fede che cerca di entrare prima tirando , poi spingendo e di nuovo tirando la porta d’ingresso, suscitando una fantastica risatina sotto i baffi del cameriere, che sfoggia una dentatura degna di nota (ha i denti in doppia fila cit.). Procede tutto bene, ottimo cibo, i nostri soliti commenti su qualsiasi persona ci passi vicino. Ci prendiamo pure il dolce (tanto da martedì chi sgarra più) ed il caffè.
Nel mentre arrivano 2 signori sulla sinistra ed una coppia, con i genitori di lui sulla destra. La madre del ragazzo chiede una Coca Cola 00 (forse quella era la farina) ed il signore a sinistra, che ha precedentemente ordinato tutto quello che c’è scritto nel menù (comprese le bruschette Ikea da comporre) mastica con tanta passione e occhi sprammati (passatemi il termine). La serata si conclude ancora meglio con me che, alzandomi dal tavolo, mi sollevo i jeans mettendogli praticamente il sedere in faccia e quasi distruggo l’illuminazione facendo dondolare lampadine con il giubbotto.
Insomma al final il signore quasi si infarta, io quasi lascio al buio il locale ed il cameriere quasi perde i denti in doppia fila dalle risate.
Direi che anche oggi abbiamo rallegrato la giornata ad un considerevole numero di persone!
Barcelona is one of the most densely populated cities in Europe. For the year 2008 the city council calculated the population to 1,621,090 living in the 102.2 km2 sized municipality, giving the city an average population density of 15,926 inhabitants per square kilometre with Eixample being the most populated district. n the case of Barcelona though, the land distribution is extremely uneven. Half of the municipality or 50.2 km2, all of it located on the municipal edge is made up of the ten least densely populated neighbourhoods containing less than 10% of the city's population, the uninhabited Zona Franca industrial area and Montjuïc forest park. Leaving the remaining 90% or slightly below 1.5 million inhabitants living on the remaining 52 square kilometres at an average density close to 28,500 inhabitants per square kilometre. #suspanish
