joseluisjuancar: Vistalegre es la ciudad, que es una copia barata de Madrid está inspirada en Madrid. La plaza ya sé que es Las Ventas, y ya pensé que alguien se podía confundir
IL. : Thank you!!! Personally I like bullfighting, but I understand people that are against it.
OK. So we start today's update. As the title says I will show..... tenements!
First of all, a 90% of the Vistalegrian population live in flats, and Vistalegre's population is around 6.500.000 inhabitants (almost 10.000.000 in its metropolitan area), so the Vistalegre cityscape (and most of the Iberian cities' one) is full of apartment blocks.
First, we visit some buildings near the VA10 motorway, Vistalegre's inner ring road. (Motorways are usually numbered as Axx, being "xx" numbers from 1 to 99, ring roads are a special case, but this will be explained in a special update). These buildings were built in the '70s and '80s, and medium class families live in them mainly.

Let's move on.....
Ciudad Jardín is a quiet neighbourhood in the outskirts of Vistalegre, 30 min. driving or 25 min. by subway. It's an example of a standard modern district developed in the 2000s, with wide streets, modern buildings and bicycle paths. Here are some pictures...
Economic crysis that Nueva Iberia suffers since 2007 has affected the construction. We can see empty clearings where new housing projects were planned to be built, but those plans were cancelled.
Last, but not least, a mosaic of Ciudad Jardín:
Hope you liked it!!!
