1 University of Cantabria, Department of Geography, Urban and Regional Planning, Cantabria, SPAIN

Abstract. In the following paper, we will present the results of the analysis of territorial dynamics that the mountain areas of Spain have had in recent decades from the identification and definition of factors, processes and outcomes. We have chosen several representative case studies from various Autonomous Communities corresponding to different regions of the mountains of northern Spain (Cantabrian Mountains and Atlantic Pyrenees), mountains in the northwest of Castilla and León, the Central System, the Iberian System and the Mounts of Toledo.
