Madrid Río, and Fountains of “Madrid’s Beach”

Madrid Río, and Fountains of “Madrid’s Beach”

It is a fact that Madrid has no beach, but it has always been a dream for Madrilians.

Back in 1932, an artificial beach on the Manzanares River was opened to the public. A dam was built there for this purpose. This beach, was destroyed in 1939 during the Spanish Civil War.

In addition to a good deal of public swimming pools that exist in Madrid, as they finished the works of the new ring road M-30, putting it underground, has also served to improve and clean the Manzanares River to create what is now called Madrid Rio, and the new Playa de Madrid, (Madrid Beach).
