abandoned villages

Spain is dotted with abandoned villages, known as ‘Aldeas abandonadas’ in Spanish. Increasingly, news reports surface about people purchasing these deserted hamlets in their entirety to breathe new life into them. Often, these endeavors are driven by idealistic visions of self-sufficiency or ecotourism.

According to the latest official counts, there are approximately 3,000 such villages in Spain. Additionally, there are around 2,000 villages with only one resident left. Most of these abandoned villages are located in the lush regions of Galicia and Asturias, but they can also be found in the provinces of Teruel, Cuenca, and the foothills of the Spanish Pyrenees as more hamlets fall into decay due to their last residents leaving.

Dreaming away

If you ever find yourself daydreaming about a future in a tranquil, green setting, you can explore the website (in Spanish). There, you’ll find a diverse selection of hamlets and villages neatly categorized by province. You can also browse through castles, country houses, manors, or wineries. Keep in mind that the more attractively priced a village is, the more work it may require. In essence, you’ll be purchasing a group of ruins.
