In 1998 there were about 100,000 foreigners living in Andalucía. By 2012, this had jumped to 750,000, or 8,8% of the population here.
Quite a few forasteros.
6 towns in Andalucía have more than 50% of foreigners resident on the padron. Of these, 5 are in Almeria: Arboleas (68,4%), Partaloa (62,4%) Mojácar (61,5%), Los Gallardos and Bedar. The first two are dumps, the third a fascist run right wing penal colony, the fourth a nice place to live and the last an even nicer place to live.
The other town is Benahavís in Málaga. I vaguely remember being there once, but it didn’t make much of an impression on me.
The average age of these residents is:
Arboleas 56; Partaloa, 55,5; Mojácar 49,5; Bédar 55,5; Los Gallardos, 52,9.
And yet Mojácar passes by as if it had never heard of a foreigner who might want to live there, and it was up to Huercal Overa to have the integration festival.
