With about 30,000 inhabitants, and located at the crossroads between two distinguishable sub spaces, the town [of Ambatolampy] was originally built on a hill 1610m in height. The construction of National road N7 channelled growth in a downward direction along the road which had to be built along the orographical arrangement. This resulted in a town morphology dislocated into 2 parts, separated by a small valley of 50 hectares which are occupied by rice fields.
