Video: A Review of Public Space in Spain

By Terry Sidhu

Spain, like many European cities has great public spaces and corridors that are comfortable for people to walk through. The spaces offer a beautiful solution to sustainable development as people are invited to view and access the city without a car. In Spain, cities like Madrid, Barcelona, and Valencia usually receive the greatest praise for good urbanism within the country, but several notable examples exist in the smaller communities in Southern and Northern Spain.

Cordoba in southern Spain is a community of roughly 330,000 inhabitants and known for its Urban form and roots in the Roman Empire. Pamplona is a community in Northern Spain known for the famous Fiesta de San Fermin (bull-fighting) and has a population of roughly 200,000. Both medium sized communities are presented in the following video, and have lessons to offer any Canadian city, including Vancouver.
