Since shortly before the revival of the pilgrimage, some former residents of Foncebadón and their immediate families are returning to rehabilitate dilapidated or abandoned homes remaining. The people began to be abandoned in the late 60s, early 70s, mostly because of the economic difficulties that the people had at that time. Much of the population emigrated to Madrid Spain and other cities in search of employment and a life away from agriculture, livestock and mining, as these were the only jobs that offered Foncebadón and its environs. After a few years, all the demographics of the people was drastically reduced from a hundred people two people.
