SPAIN’S ‘ghost town’ is showing signs of life amid a property resurgence across the country.
Sesena, in northern Spain, became a symbol of the country’s economic crisis after thousands of houses were built but never sold in 2008.
Houses and arcades were bricked up, parks were turned into tyre-filled dumping grounds and the town was labelled a ‘ghost town’.
Now, however, things look to be on the up.
Amid the desolation, a real estate agency run by Monica Solera is seeing life return and has sold over 50 properties in the past two weeks.
Solera said: “Housing demand looks to be on the up once more.
“Even the banks have started to lend again.”
