Costa del Sol is a paradigmatic example of how a touristic theme park is being transformed -for the least fifty years- in an urban space with more diverse uses. We have called intentionally this area ZoMeCS, Zona Metropolitana Costa del Sol (Metropolitan Area of Costa del Sol). ZoMeCS is a place that creates life forms specific to its territory. We understand that its nature and its internal and external territorial linkages - connections that go beyond of the purely spatial-, make it a very modern urban space itself which links the tourism and its consequences with contemporary life. We make a reflection about the potential of ZoMeCS as laboratory of experimentation and research of contemporaneous milieu and population.
