The Portuguese and the Spanish urban systems have developed with their backs to each otheras the result of the different historical development of the two nation-states of the IberianPeninsula. Since 1986, the date of Spain and Portugal’s integration into the European Community,both countries have witnessed the blurring of their common border and the subsequentappearance and consolidation of several Spanish-Portuguese axes of urban development.The most important of them all: the Atlantic Axis (A Coruña-Vigo-Porto) will be thesubject matter of this paper.
