At The Language Corner we feel very lucky to have our English school so close to such a vibrant and fascinating road as Avenida del Marqués de Corbera. It plays a very important role in the life of the La Elipa community and our native English teachers always comment on how much activity there is up and down the length of the road.
As well as being the main road through La Elipa the Avenida del Marqués de Corbera hosts some of the most popular social events. If you are from the Ciudad Lineal area you surely must have attended at least one of the Fiesta de Septiembre, Mercadillo Popular de la Artesanía, Carrera Popular, Fiesta de la Bicicleta and Cabalgatas de los Reyes!
Avenida del Marqués de Corbera was recently featured prominently on the RTVE program Comando Actualidad. It starred amongst other people the famous local band Burning, who themselves reference La Elipa and Avenida del Marqués de Corbera in many of their tunes. Also featured were the Asociación de Vecinos La Nueva Elipa, who we support in their important work in the local area.
Other highlights of Avenida del Marqués de Corbera include the incredibly well-known Dragón of La Elipa and the fantastically friendly bar La Fornia, where you can often find The Language Corner teachers enjoying the great food and ambience. The road is a short distance from other important local sites such as the Cementerio de La Almudena, Fuente del Berro park, the TV tower El Pirulí and the adjoining padel courts.
So as you can see Avenida del Marqués de Corbera is much more than just a road, it’s an authentic piece of Madrid history!
