By analyzing all the flows of rural exodus, urban concentration and urban deconcentration in a single comprehensive system, we can find settlement logics characteristic of each socioeconomic stage. This article attempts to synthesize these patterns, which lead to changes of prominence in territorial dynamics between different habitats and migratory typologies that occur over time. We conceptualize the resulting model as territorial transition. Although it has a theoretical link with important precedents, it can be considered an original contribution, since it has not previously been conceptualized in such detail. The narrative sequence has two parts. It begins by presenting the basis, the theoretical background and the stages of territorial transition, and continues by drawing a contrast with the observed reality of the Spanish case, analyzing in detail certain key specific features. In conclusion, we highlight that the formulation of this model may allow the interpretation of apparently confusing or conflicting phenomena of other international territorial systems.
