Las Delicias

Las Delicias

            Las Delicias is one of seven barrios in Arganzuela.  It first began to be developed during the time of Rey Rernando VI, in the latter half of the 18th century with the intention of being an area of natural beauty and parks.  It was named after the row of double trees lining the street next to the Manzanares.  The barrio is served by four metro stations, Legazpi, Delicias, Arganzuela – Planetario and Mendez Álvaro.

Conservative government of Mariano Rajoy (2011 – 2018)

            The Dirección General de Control Ambiental, Transportes y Aparcamientos del Área de Gobierno de Medio Ambiente, Seguridad y Movilidad fined the organizers of Pride 2012, AGEL, COGAM and FELGTB, €42000 for noise violations in Chueca. The fine was for three very serious noise infractions and one minor noise infraction.[1]

            The floats for Pride 2022 left from Plaza de Carlos V at 20:30. There were thirty-nine in total listed on the official march order but news reports saying there were fifty-two. They were organized into four groups.  The first group included COGAM, FELGTB and RTVE. The second group was for political parties. The third group had LGTB themed businesses and events. The fourth group was for businesses and international corporations, and included Amazon Prime Video whose headquarters are found in the barrio.
