Abstract Madrid, the location of our research, is a municipality located in the Sabana de Bogotá. It borders on Colombia’s capital city of Bogotá, along with other municipalities (Soacha, Sibaté, Mosquera, Funza, Facatativá, Chía, Cota, Cajicá, Sopó and Zipaquirá). These districts are very close to Bogotá, and this proximity increases the tension between metropolitan and rural areas that has characterized the region since the twentieth century. Today, 14 percent of Madrid’s inhabitants live in rural areas. However, they should not be considered to be peasants (Cardozo and Suárez 2014) (Fig. 2.1).
