There are two main categories of land in Spain, “urbano” which broadly speaking is intended for construction, and “rustico” which isn’t. You will hear English speakers using the words urban and rustic to define these categories.
You may come across urban land located in the countryside, next to villages, for example, or in an area that is currently undeveloped but destined for expansion. So, the term urban is not necessarily limited to urban areas as we know the word in standard English.
Under some circumstances, you can build on rustic land, and in the case of urban land, you still must ask the right questions before buying. In both types of land there are regional laws and subcategories to consider. Local town halls may interpret the law in different ways and, in some cases, contradict the regional authority. Therefore, you have to get this right and hire qualified local professionals to ask the right questions for you.
