Ciudad Lineal Madrid
The Ciudad Lineal, or Linear City of Madrid is one of the most peculiar and innovative urban areas found in the world. Ciudad Lineal was the brainchild of Spanish engineer Arturo Soria y Mata, who wanted to connect the various neighbourhoods of Madrid with the countryside in a fluid way that would ease the congestion found in traditional cities and more readily connect urbanites to nature. Although the idea was well accepted, the attempt to bring it to fruition failed. All that is left is a 5-kilometre stretch of street that is named for the quirky engineer.
- Walk the shady and leafy oasis found on Calle de Arturo Soriá and you will see Soria’s original plan, as the winding road is flanked by different neighbourhoods and parks.
- Shop at the Centro commercial Arturo Soria shopping mall, where you will be greeted with upmarket boutiques featuring clothing from some of Madrid’s finest designers.
- Admire the statue of Arturo Soria - the man who created the concept of Madrid’s Ciudad Lineal - as you cross the bridge that offers great views of Avenida de America.
Madrid features some of the best public transportation in Europe and the Ciudad Lineal is well connected to it. There is a stop of the Metro at the Pinar de Chamartin station that is just a short walk from the centre. To really get an idea of Soria’s plan for the neighbourhood it is best to explore the area on foot, as the six kilometre road offers a small glimpse of his overall vision. From the Madrid Airport, just take the train or shuttle buses that go to the city centre, where you can get transport via bus or taxi.
