Unemployed Antonia Rodriguez, 44, smokes in an apartment of an occupied building in the Andalusian capital of Seville, southern Spain. More than 30 struggling families are occupying an apartment in Seville in southern Spain that has been empty since it was finished three years ago.

The building is one of hundreds of thousands of ghost constructions gathering dust all over Spain that banks and property developers are unable to sell. Most of the occupiers of the flats, which have brand-new wooden floors with sparkling double glazing, have been thrown out of their own homes by landlords or bailiffs after they defaulted on their mortgage or could not pay the rent.
