The city of San Sebastián (basque “Donostia”) is located in the basque country in northern Spain and the capital of the province of Guipuzcoa.
Traditions and customs have a high value in the city and on the 20th of January, the streets are filled with hundreds of men and women dressed as cooks and soldiers to celebrate the so called “Tamborrada" by performing drumming parades. Besides of professional drummers, most people use barrels and spoons to drum and play the traditional song "March of San Sebastián" composed by Raimundo Sarriegui. The origin of “La Tamborrada" and the dress as cooks isn´t certain. It´s said that it all began in the year 1813 when the city was occupied by enemy forces and the people of the city tried to mock the soldiers during their march from their headquarters to the city walls by aping their procession using barrels and buckets as drums.
The celebrations begin at 0:00 o´clock during the night of 19th to 20th by hoist the city flag on the constitutional square and end by lowering it exactly 24 hours later. During this time it is nearly impossible not to encounter a drumming parade in the streets. The sounds of drums and barrels fills the city for the whole day and night.

Since the beginning of the economic and real estate crisis in 2008 in Spain, thousands of residential buildings are more often than not abandoned. Entire districts are left empty and more than 600,000 new constructed apartments throughout Spain have not been sold yet. In addition to the number of uninhabited older apartments, the total amount of empty living space comes to more than 1 million. Also, thousands of construction sites have been left abandoned for years. Although the rentals and real estate prices have decreased about 30% since 2009, the living space is unused due to the high unemployment in the population.

These pictures were taken in October 2013 in Mairena de Aljarafe, Palomares del Río and Gelves close to Seville, Andalusia and represent a situation representative of the whole country.
