Ask anyone about it today, however, and you re more likely to hear about a working class neighborhood that made international headlines in January.

poor neighborhood grew to house around a third of the city s 180,000 residents, it remained largely peripheral. Most visitors to the cozy, tourist friendly downtown never heard of it until January, when Gamonal became a Spanish household name after young protesters smashed bank windows and set Skechers Go Walk Memory Foam

Dozens of arrests fueled the demonstrations, which prompted a wave of national solidarity and more protests in Madrid, Barcelona and other cities organized with the help of the Twitter tag GamonalEffect. The pressure led Burgos mayor to suspend the construction project.

The boulevard was the straw that broke the camel s back, says Mila Calvo, an outspoken housewife who heads Las Eras de Gamonal neighbors association.

Adding insult to injury, a controversial tender awarded the project s master plan to a businessman connected to the ruling conservative Popular Party who had been convicted for corruption.

Most residents like the system well enough and certainly better than the city s plans. Parking in the proposed new garage would have been affordable only for those able to pay more than $27,000 for a 40 year lease a significant sum for most Spaniards, especially Gamonal residents.

According to an informal free parking strategy, drivers park on the side of the street in two rows. Cars in the outside row blocking the inner one are left unlocked and with their hand brakes off so other drivers can move them to get out.

Decades of harsh factory conditions transformed many of the typically conservative Catholic migrants into class conscious workers.

BURGOS, Spain Until recently, Spaniards associated this chilly capital of the northern Castille region mainly with its magnificent Gothic cathedral and morcilla, a pork blood sausage.
