”Los Álamos” Apartment Complex.

Mérida, Badajoz, Extremadura.

“El Prado” district, in the outskirts of Mérida, is one of these new neighborhoods that popped out from nowhere during the worst years of the property bubble. This complex was abandoned in 2009, when the construction company went bankrupt. In summer 2013, 13 families with no resources moved in here, but the local authorities evicted them a few months later and proceeded to wall in the complex. These families are now being prosecuted for illegal appropriation
