In southern European countries, the financial debacle that took hold from 2008 was deeply rooted in urban policies and the property markets. Thus, the origin of the crisis must be sought in the growing disjunction, in previous decades, between the constant production of urban space and the growing financial imbalance. Furthermore, the consequent political reaction of austerity, with its intense and painful effects, altered the social and economic fabric of urban areas as well as the traditional bases for welfare and progress themselves (Cochrane 2007; Seixas and Albet 2012; Nel.lo 2015).
