Acacias is home to a number of important sites and places in Madrid, including the Puerta de Toledo, the Puente de Toledo, the Río de Manzanares, and the remains of the old city wall from the 1500s.  It began to grow as a barrio during the mid-1500s during the reign of Rey Felipe II helped in part by its strategic location on the road between Toledo and Aranjuez. It currently has a population of around 38,000 people.


The barrio is where Lucía Sánchez Saornil spent most of her youth, from the late 1890s to the late 1910s. At the time, it was a working-class area, that was still on the fringes of Madrid.


Calle del Labrador is a street in the working-class area of Arganzuela. It was on the top of this street that Lucía Sánchez Saornil, who was born on 13 December 1895, grew up on as a child.
