The changing face of Spain

In a fascinating article about beaches today and yesteryear in the newspaper El Mundo, I found these photographs of Santa Pola.   


This is Santa Pola in the sixties when the town had 8,000 in habitants


and now.

It is just as fascinating to look at pictures of Bigastro. The photograph in the Ayuntamiento taken in the sixties shows that the town finished just past the church. Beyond that was the kitchen garden. There are no high rise flats to be seen; the highest building is just two storeys.
