An analysis of two noise surveys of the city of Cáceres is presented. The first was made for 400 inhabitants living throughout the city, and the second for 50 inhabitants of a conflictive zone due to noise during the night, mainly at weekends. The similarity of the two groups of persons interviewed was studied and verified. Then a comparison was made of the responses referring to disturbing noise sources and effects of noise. The results showed appreciable differences between the two surveys. Some continuous sound pressure level measurements made over several days are also presented. They show major differences in the sound levels between the zone and the rest of the city.
