Procesos de difusión residencial en antiguas capitales comarcales. Colmenar Viejo (Madrid)
Journal article, 2015

The Madrid metropolitan region represents an emblematic case study within the contemporary debate on metropolitan residential dispersal, due to the diversity of local situations through which single-family housing development is shaped. Within such a diversified context, the municipality of Colmenar Viejo should be given special attention. Situated in the Manzanares basin, North of Madrid, Colmenar is currently a hybrid between its historical ambitions of market town, certain dormitory-town features and hints of an evolution towards a metropolitan sub-centre.
