From the turn of the 20th century, it was apparent that Spain's national demographic structure was changing. The year 1900 ushered in a period of spectacular urban expansion. By 1930, for instance, the city of Salamanca—situated north-west of Madrid towards the Portuguese border had a population of 46,867 and had nearly doubled in size since the turn of the century. As the cities and towns expanded, so the rural population shrank. The province of Salamanca, today part of the region of Castilla-Leon, belongs to exactly this heartland of traditional Spain. The city of Salamanca, with its layers of government and administration, its university, the small metallurgy industry, and considerable construction works, provided a sharp contrast to the province's other municipal communities. Like many episcopal sees, the city of Salamanca was dominated by ecclesiastical buildings.
