"There are a lot of "ghost" places built with the loans the banks gave and could not recover. The people could not buy the houses because they were expensive, because the crisis started and the situation is just getting worse."

"We have been living for a long time outside of our means, and we are now paying for that. We are paying a high price for the crisis because we acted wrongly asking for credit when we didn't have any so we are paying a high price. But for the banks who gave loans that they didn't have the means to give, everything is fine because Europe is "rescuing" them."

"It's not fair, because if it had happened to a man who has an apartment with a loan through Bankia, they would take his apartment. But now, the bank did not do what it should have done, so they inject some money to rescue it and that's it."

Spanish stocks were rising strongly on Monday and the interest rates on its bonds were down sharply in the first day of trading since the Spanish bailout was announced.
The Ibex-35 stock index was up almost 5 percent shortly after opening. Bank stocks rose strongly. Shares in Bankia, which had requested 19 (b) billion euros in aid to cover its bad loans and assets, rose 16 percent.
The yield on 10-year bonds was down 17 basis points to about 6 percent.
Meanwhile, evidence of the financial crisis could be seen in what was once planned as a prestigious development close to the Spanish capital.
Towering apartment blocks, complete with swimming pools and playgrounds, loom over empty streets, weed-filled lots and gaping excavation pits in the town of Sesena.
The lone bank in the mega-development nicknamed "Manhattan" closed two years ago and most storefronts are bricked up.
Apartments galore are for sale and prices are plunging.
More than 13,000 apartments were supposed to go up to create a mini-city for 30,000 people just 45 minutes outside of Madrid.
But only 5,100 were built, many are uninhabited and regular Spaniards who bought them as investments are now competing to offload them for huge losses.
Such modern-day ghost towns have become a familiar part of the Spanish landscape, abandoned shells left to slowly decay.
Spain's real estate crash and economic implosion have turned what was supposed to become a vibrant suburban paradise for young Spanish couples and their children into one of the most visible monuments of the country's boom gone bust.
"We have been living for a long time outside of our means, and we are now paying for that," said 39-year-old taxi driver Carlos Sierra, who lives in Sesena.
"We acted wrongly asking for credit when we didn't have any so we are paying a high price. But for the banks who gave loans that they didn't have the means to give, everything is fine because Europe is "rescuing" them," Sierra added.
On Sunday, Spain's prime minister warned that even with the promised EU rescue package of up to 100 (b) billion euros (125 (b) billion US dollars), the country's grinding financial misery will get worse this year.
Spain's banks, particularly its savings banks or "cajas," are burdened with about 184 (b) billion euros (232 (b) billion US dollars) in toxic real estate holdings, including loans and repossessed homes.
The banks' situation is expected to deteriorate as more people facing unemployment are unable to pay their mortgages.
Many Spaniards believe that even with the EU rescue package, the banks will be saved, but little will change for the average citizen.
"It's not fair, because if it had happened to a man who has an apartment with a loan through Bankia, they would take his apartment. But now, the bank did not do what it should have done, so they inject some money to rescue it and that's it," said Sesena resident Antonio Alcolado.
If the entire rescue fund is tapped, each person in the nation of 47 (m) million will be laden with 21,000 euros (26,500 US dollars) of new debt, which almost equates to the average annual salary for those in work.
Spain's unemployment rate has hit almost 25 percent, according to government statistics, whilst youth unemployment for 16 to 24 year olds is at a stunning 52 percent.
Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy took pains to avoid the word bailout on Sunday, saying Spain's rescue package was a line of credit that its most troubled banks would be able to tap.
The assistance will not come with the outside control over government macroeconomic policy like that imposed on Greece, Ireland and Portugal when their public finances were bailed out.
Spain hopes to regain the economic credibility it has lost by shoring up its banks.
This should result in credit being restored so businesses and individuals shut off from loans can start borrowing and the economy will grow again, Rajoy insisted, again without saying when.
