Do you want to know which area of Madrid would be a good fit for you?

This post is part of the “The best areas to live in Madrid” Series. In this post I’ll share info about the Chamartín district that will help you get an idea of what your life would be like in this area, the type of housing you can find, its prices and the activities available by just going out on the street and walking a few minutes.

Chamartin is one of the 21 districts into which the city of Madrid is divided.

Chamartin is the most residential and landscaped district of the central area (within the M-30) of Madrid,

There are many schools and commercial areas are concentrated in some streets while there are others with few shops and therefore more residential.

The whole District is well connected by public transport.

There is the “Santiago Bernabéu” football stadium where games are held with large crowds that cause traffic cuts in the surrounding streets.

Chamartín, in turn, is divided into the following neighborhoods:

  • El Viso: one of the most upscale areas of Madrid
  • Castilla
  • CiudadJardín
  • Hispanoamérica-Bernabéu
  • Nueva España
  • Prosperidad
