Procesos de difusión residencial en antiguas capitales comarcales. Colmenar Viejo (Madrid)
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 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.
