Abstract

This article presents the role of age as an important axis of analysis in the framework of social and cultural geography. The fieldwork includes focus groups, interviews and walking tours around the neighborhood, to identify the more used places, the preferred places and the places young people don't like. We want to know how they build their lives in the neighborhood, how they spend their time and how they use public spaces. Analyzing the neighborhood life is essential to understand the different needs and interests of boys and girls in relation to their experiences and perceptions of lived spaces.
