    © 2017 CSIC. Moroccan's are one of the immigrants groups with higher presence in Spain. They also were one of the first international migratory flows received in the country. In this context, we study the settlement process of this community in Spain, focusing our attention in their residential segregation patterns. As a novelty, we have used a new perspective that takes the whole country in account. To achieve this objective, we have analysed those municipalities with a greater presence of this group, with a large population time series (2000-2014). The main results show moderate levels of segregation and a decrease of these indexes. As a negative result, the interaction with the Spaniards has been steadly declining.
