This paper aims to explore an early process of ethnogentrification, previously reported by the local media, in a working class suburban district of Barcelona. following a brief description of the research carried out in 2004 (published in 2006) on the urban and social changes in this study area, this paper presents a comparative analysis between the continuities and changes on 'retails cape' in the period of 2004 to 2011, by updating its ethnic retail cartography. Comparative results will allow to opening up a debate about some lexical abuses on the use of the term 'ethno gentrification' in the specific context of Mediterranean cities.
