After the Spanish civil war, the country was plunged into absolute poverty and famine was very present. The dictator Francisco Franco found an agrarian reform project designed by the republican government that he had defeated with the help of European (German and Italian) fascism. He applied this reform and built more than 200 new towns in a sociological phenomenon without precedent in the world. They promised “home and work” to families across the nation, although many of them agreed because they were supporters of Franco and not because they were families in need. Today those towns that are around 60 years old still exist, although with a different name so as not to remember the dictator Franco who ordered their construction; many times with the labor of slave prisoners of the civil war.
