Quartieri Spagnoli (Spanish Quarter) is a part of the city of Naples in Italy. It is a poor area, suffering from high unemployment. But at the end of the day, the Quartieri Spagnoli is definitively one of the neighborhoods with the most character.
The area consists of a grid of around eighteen streets by twelve.
It is extremely crowded, with about 80,000 people per square kilometer.
The Quartieri were created in the 16th to house Spanish garrisons, hence the name, whose role was to quench revolts from the Neapolitan population.
Soon they became an infamous quarter with a high rate of criminality and prostitution.
Quartieri Spagnoli is one of the poor neighborhoods, with one of the highest unemployment rates in the city.
The Neapolitan language is stronger here than anywhere else.
The width of the average street is about 3 metres.
