Madrid

Madrid lies on the southern Meseta Central, 60 km south of the Guadarrama mountain range and straddling the Jarama and Manzanares river sub-drainage basins, in the wider Tagus River catchment area. Madrid has a considerable difference in altitude within the city proper ranging from the 700 m around Plaza de Castilla in the north of the city to the 570 m around La China wastewater treatment plant on the Manzanares’ riverbanks, near the latter’s confluence with the Fuente Castellana thalweg in the south of the city. The Monte de El Pardo (a protected forested area covering over a quarter of the municipality) reaches its top altitude 843 m on its perimeter, in the slopes surrounding El Pardo reservoir located at the north-western end of the municipality, in the Fuencarral-El Pardo district.
