    This paper has two main aims. First, we analyze regional growth dynamics in Spain from the point of view of the New Economic Geography focusing on spatial location using regional data for the period 1980-2000. Second, we try to identify the factors explaining the regional concentration of the stock of private capital. In particular, we look at regional productive efficiency, location and specialization of the human capital, size of the consumption market and territorial infrastructure resources. El objetivo planteado en este trabajo es, por un lado, presentar la dinámica territorial del crecimiento desde una óptica distinta a la que utiliza la teoría convencional. La atención se centra en la contrastación de la hipótesis sobre la concentración de la actividad económica planteada por la Nueva Geografía Económica, aplicándose a la localización espacial de actividades en las regiones españolas en el periodo 1980-2000. Por otro lado, se trata de poner de manifiesto cuáles han sido algunos de los factores que explican la concentración regional del stock de capital productivo privado en las regiones españolas, tales como la eficiencia productiva regional, la localización y especialización de la mano de obra, el tamaño del mercado de consumo y la dotación territorial de infraestructuras.
