About This City

Rivas-Vaciamadrid is a municipality situated at the meeting point of the Jarama and Manzanares rivers in the Alcala comarca in the autonomous community of Madrid. It is located approximately 20 kilometres from central Madrid. It has been one of the fastest growing municipalities in Spain in recent years, growing from 500 inhabitants in the 1980s to its current figure of 70,000, the population is projected to rise to 100,000 by 2014. It is bordered to the north by Madrid and San Fernando de Henares, to the south by Arganda del Rey and San Martin de la Vega, to the east by Mejorada del Campo and Velilla de San Antonio, and to the west by Getafe and Madrid (the district of Villa de Vallecas.) Despite the high urban growth, almost three quarters of the municipality are part of the south eastern regional park, making it an important ecological centre with numerous lakes and various species of wildlife and fauna.

In 1845, the area of Vaciamadrid, previously part of Villa de Vallecas, was joined to the town of Rivas, with the unified municipality originally called Ribas de Jarama. The area was devastated during the Spanish civil war and had to be rebuilt in the post-civil war period. In 1954 the name was changed to its current title. At the end of the 1980s the area was designated as a future nucleus for new urbanisation projects under a project titled Rivas-Urbanizaciones (Rivas-Urbanisations). The first developments were those in the current districts of Pablo Iglesias and Covibar.
In 2004 the municipal boundary with the city of Madrid was altered. This involved the transfer of areas known as Covibar-Madrid to Rivas-Vaciamadrid. In exchange, some uninhabited areas in Los Berrocales district were transferred to Madrid in order to allow the construction of a new housing project.

Rivas-Vaciamadrid has Csa climate type (mild with dry, hot summer) according to Koppen climate classification.
