Palos de Moguer

Palos de la Frontera is a barrio with a population of around 27,000 residents.  The layout for the district was done as part of the 1860 Castro Plan that attempted to do an organized expansion of Madrid’s emerging urban areas.  The name for the barrio drew from a metro station originally located there; the metro station has subsequently changed its name, but the barrio name remained the same.


Acuartelamiento de Batalla del Salado, located at Calle de la Batalla del Salado, 31 – 32, was the first facility purpose built for Guardia Civil in Spain. In December 1976, members of the Guardía Civil would hold one of the first major demonstrations in demand of their own rights for things like access to health care and salary increases, an event that resulted in 200 members being detained, 50 expelled, court martialed or transferred out of Madrid. The facility contained residences for members of the Guardia Civil. Psychologist Fernanda Monasterio Cobelo was born there in 1920.
