Plaza de Hortaleza

Plaza de Hortaleza

Madrid, Spain



The Santos de la Humosa square, or better known to skaters as the 'Plaza de Hortaleza', is a benchmark among the Spanish spots today. There was a time when it was very damaged and there were conflicts between the local people, until it was remodelled by the local skaters. This immersion was very well received by the local neighbourhood, who noticed a great improvement and good use of the square. Since then, the square is being transformed with improvements almost daily thanks to the good work of the regulars there.

It's shaped like an amphitheatre, and you'll find ledges with metal corners without exit surrounding the square, stairs to jump, low to high ledges and elements like flatrails that have been built by the locals, a double height marble block, banks, a eurogap and other creative obstacles which they have developed.


If you go to Hortaleza more than once, you could find that it changes. The locals don't cease to amaze by continually adding new obstacles and moving the ones already there. The best time to visit Madrid and skate is in March, April and May.
