Jun 27, 2007
Getafe is 13 km far away from Madrid city centre.
At south, towards Toledo, you can find this city (pop. 150.000).
Getafe is famous because the first spanish aerodrome, and the first aviators began here. During 2007-2008, the local football team will play the UEFA Cup.
It is connected to Madrid, by road (6 lines), by train and by Subway (Line Metrosur).
Cerro de los Ángeles (Angels´ hill): Catholic monastery in a granite hill. It is the geographical centre of Spain. Nice views.
Catedral de Nuestra Señora de La Magdalena (Getafe´s Cathedral): This Renaissance temple from 18th century, it has a mudejar tower and a baroque altarpiece.
ACCOMMODATION: I have included only easy-reach places:
* Hotel Carlos III (***)
* Colón Hostel (**)
* Hotel AC (****) - Excelent for business (My choice).
* Hotel Hesperia (****)
* Hotel Ibis (**)
There are a lot places for eating, from the common Fast Food (McDonalds and Burger King), a lot of restaurants with a good value for your money, and the best restaurant: Casa de Pías (Michelin Guide).
Lots of bars, only one disco: Casablanca (Probably for 40somenthings).
For more info. do not hesitate an ask.
