This overview, offered by Customaps, shows the neighborhood of Vallecas, Spain. This district was an independent village until 1950 when it became part of Madrid, the capital of Spain. During the 1960s, many Spanish immigrants to the Madrid conurbation settled in Vallecas, forming the largest slum area around the capital.
During the years of the Franco regime, Vallecas earned its reputation as a neighborhood of resistance to the right-winged dictatorship. In the most recent years, the district experienced an important improvement with about 25.000 new flats and houses called "Ensanche de Vallecas", one of the biggest new areas in Madrid. Professional footballer Álvaro Negredo is Vallecas' most famous export. Nicknamed "The Beast of the Vallecas", Negredo currently plays for Valencia CF.
