Corcho extremeño y andaluz, tapones gerundenses

Santiago Zapata Blanco


This article analyzes one of the aspects of the spatial inequality of Spanish industrialization, using, as an example, the cork industry. First of all, the location of the industry in question from its birth, in the middle of the 18th century, unti1 now is described. Then, some hypotheses are shown to explain on the one hand the reasons for the concentration of most of the cork factories en Gerona, far away from the raw material, and, on the other hand, the fact that only a small number of those factories are situated en Estremadura and Andalusia, where the cork oaks are found. Most of them are specialized in obtaining semifactured products for industrial use in Catalonia or more recently in Portugal.
