The populaation of Pontevedra right now is 80,000 so there shouldn´t be used data from 100 years ago... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.154.90.89 (talk) 20:35, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Density[edit]

Population as of 2008 is 80,202 (Galician Institute of Statistics [www.ige.eu]). Given the area of the municipality of 118.3 km2 the new density of population is 677 hab/km2 (approx.) Swamp Greetings (talk) 10:47, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Eduardo Pondal[edit]

I've added "Eduardo Pondal" as a new area/neighbourhood of the city. Traditionally that area was either linked to the parish of Virxe do Camiño or referred to as simply the Gorgullón (street next to river Gafos, passing by). However, with the opening of the Eduardo Pondal Avenue parallel to Gorgullón St that area of the city has grown exponentially in recent years (plus that's where the train and bus stations are, also the Vialia shopping centre, etc), to a point where locals are starting to refer it to as the "Eduardo Pondal" area, or even the "Vialia" area... That's why I "dared" to include it as a new neighbourhood. As a matter of fact there is an official "association of residents of Eduardo Pondal".

Any comments/opinions on this are most welcomed of course, but I personally would start treating it as a new neighbourhood of the city. Swamp Greetings (talk) 11:11, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Spain[edit]

Someone added "Spain" to the first paragraph. IMHO it is redundant as it is specified that Pontevedra is in Galicia, in the Iberian peninsula, and the profile box on the right mentions it's in Spain in a number of occasions (plus location map). Anyhoo, in order to keep everybody happy, I moved "Spain" within the same paragraph, because in the way it was initially written it gave the wrong impression that it was Spain that was in the NW of the Iberian Peninsula, not the city. The text flows better and more naturally now. I think that's important for an opening paragraph. Swamp Greetings (talk) 22:08, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
