Mujeres de San Lorenzo

The San Lorenzo neighbourhood in Castellón de la Plana, Spain, has a history of division and segregation. The Ribesalbes road (also known as the “Berlin Wall”) separates the neighbourhood in two: the Roma side and the Payo* side, but the distance between these two communities runs wider and deeper than a road. The association Mujeres de San Lorenzo (Women of San Lorenzo) builds bridges by bringing together women from both communities to share spaces of reconciliation.

 

*The Spanish Roma use payo/paya to refer to non-Roma Spaniards.
