ABSTRACT
In this article we shall offer an approach to the cultural products relating to the Spanish transition to democracy, paying attention to some of their key political and memory aspects. The overview examines the vicissitudes of their main narratives over the period from 1978 to the second half of the 1990s: while during the years of the disenchantment a critical viewpoint of the Transition spread, the early 1980s witnessed the birth of another more indulgent and commemorative. Nevertheless, the 1990s began with the first attempts to reexamine the topic, followed by an extremely strained political situation where the belief that the Transition had proved a fraud began to emerge.
