An increasing number of young gypsies are abandoning their traveller roots across the country.

In fact, the number of gypsies living in camps has reduced by 70% over the past 20 years.

Government officials put this down to greater acceptance and inclusion of gypsies in the educational system (more than 93% of children now attend school in Spain).  

As few as 2% of the total gypsy population represented on the Iberian Peninsula still live in traditional camps.
