Plaza de la Villa de Canillejas

Plaza de la Villa de Canillejas is a small pedestrian square in the centre of the neighbourhood of Canillejas. It owes its name “Villa” to the status that was endowed on Canillejas in 1627. The municipality was incorporated into Madrid City Council in 1949.

Just after this small square we come upon the Plaza Párroco Luis Calleja in which we find the Parish Church of Santa María la Blanca de Canillejas, a church in the Mudéjar style and an authentic historical vestige of the old town.

Four-storey blocks of flats built in the 1960s and 70s surround a tree-lined space, where we find terrace cafés, neighbourhood shops and parked vehicles.
