This chapter deliberately steps aside from the iconic examples of Barcelona and Bilbao in Spain and discusses Madrid. Comparing two neighbourhoods in the historic core - Lavapiés and Triball - it shows how different dispotifs are used in the production of gentrification, and how gentrification is limited not just by the Spanish housing crisis, but also by non-European immigrants, a counterculture, escalating struggles for the right to housing as a response to the social and economic crisis, and new residents that do not fit the profile of the desired neighbourhood.

Keywords:   Madrid, Spain, gentrification limited, escalating struggles, Spanish housing crisis, urban governmentality
