Excerpt As you might expect Spain 's traditional vernacular architecture isn t easily pigeonholed; regionalism generates marked variation. Available building materials and, more significantly, climate have always dictated how people build their houses or outbuildings. The Spaniards approach to living arrangements is more easily summed up. They re nothing if not sociable; while northern Europeans anxiously section off their own plot of terra firma, in Spain they seem to enjoy living on top of each other, clustered in apartments and houses around the plaza mayor. It 's not like they re short of space either a population density of around 85 per sq km is one of the lowest in Europe.
