The municipality of Fuenlabrada is the third most populous municipality in the Community of Madrid. It is located 22 km southeast of the capital, in the industrial belt that emerged in the second half of the twentieth century and is fully integrated into the metropolitan area of the city of Madrid. It is excellently communicated.
Five of the stations of the recent Metro line that has been given the name MetroSur are located in Fuenlabrada. The past of these lands must be very remote, since the Los Granados area is one of the main archaeological sites in the region. As for its artistic heritage, it is worth highlighting the church of St. Stephen Protomartyr, probably started in the XVI century. Its main altar is decorated with an early eighteenth-century altarpiece attributed to José Benito Churriguera and a canvas two centuries earlier that is considered the work of another notable Spanish artist, the sixteenth-century painter Claudio Coello.
