Colmenarejo

by thelittleteapot

I want to study abroad in Spain Spring 2010 and one of the options I'm considering is the Carlos III campus in Colmenarejo. I'm having a hard time finding information about this area. What's it like? Pros? Cons? Stuff to do? Transportation? Any insight about the school?

Some other locations I'm considering are Sevilla, Bilbao, or the Gestafe campus for Carlos III in Madrid.

Thanks.

Re: Colmenarejo

I don't know Colenarejo but Colmena is a beehive. And you can see El Escorial from the Uni. El Escorial is one place I would love to revisit.
I imagine that it is a new satellite town in this part of outer Madrid and most likely has good communications.

Getafe is an area of Madrid - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Getafe

Sevilla is of course a wonderful city that tends to be much warmer than Madrid so if you study better in a warm climate then maybe.... it has a large student population as does Granada another good option in Andalucia.

Re: Colmenarejo

by Aerond

I live in the area... my tip is: Get your appartment/room either in Moncloa area in Madrid or in Galapagar (nearby town), then go to the campus by bus. Number 631 departs from Moncloa every 10 minutes, and also pases through Galapagar. The campus is really easy to spot as it is the last stop. For transport you can get Abono de transportes, which is a monthly card which allows you to move through the areas for which you pay. I think the campus is in zone C1, which would be around 75€/month. A C1 card will allow you to move in every metro/train/bus in areas A, B1, B2, B3 and C1 :)

Re: Colmenarejo

by AlbertoSalinas

Dani's tip is the most trustful, in my opinion. he knows the area and the public transport tips are very accurate

I suppose your location will be conditioned by the course you are going to take... Colmenarejo and Getafe are campuses of the same univ - Carlos III - but it is not possible to follow all the courses in both. for example: I studied in Getafe, but my sister did in Colmenarejo because we chose different degrees

definitely, Colmenarejo is quite further away from madrid donwtown than Getafe. Getafe is only 15 kms far from madrid, there're easy metro, bus and train connections and it's by far not so industrial (no way, no how) as Bilbao. I've been working in Getafe for the last 8 years, I can tell you! it's the usual suburb you would find in the outskirts of London, for example, well connected with the city but well off enough to study and live there

Colmenarejo is much smaller and connections are poorer. by the way, there's the intercampus, a free bus connecting all Carlos III campuses, to meet the needs of students who are inscribed in more than one, or need to go to library... but it's slow and tiresome

I would choose Getafe rather than Colmenarejo... or just would go to a medium-size town as Sevilla or Bilbao. it depends on the degree you want to take

Travel Tips for Madrid

King Philips III Monument

by jamiesno

At the center of Plaza Mayor is a bronze statue of King Philips III, constructed in 1616 by the Italian sculptors Giovanni de Bologna and his apprentice Pietro Tacca.

In 1848 it was moved from the Casa de Campo to the Plaza Mayor. Around the same time, the plaza was redesigned with gardens, but those were removed in 1936.

You can see from these picture the Plaza Mayor is a historic place but very popular hang out, meeting place and cross road I guess for the many people that walk Madrid.

Tapas

by ger4444

Mostly it is like this: if you order a glas of wine or beer (or a delicious glas of Mosto) you get tapas along with it. After these first appetizers you continue on having more tapas either being raciones (bigger tapas) or small portions. Eating tapas is not only having a bite going together with your drink, its more: its a way of life. Its a sort of cult that combines drinking, eating with a good conversation, cosy atmothshere and meeting new people. There are many sorts of tapas of which the following are the most popular and best known. 1. Patatas Bravas (baked potatoes in tomatoe juice with unions and spanish pepper) 2. Banderillas (little snacks sticked on a cocktailstick, like fish, shrimps, eggs or vetgetables) 3. Albondigas (meatballs in tomatoe sause) 4. Tortilla a la espnola (the thick omelet made by onions, potatoes, eggs and spices) 5. Jamon serrano (ham with bead) 6. Chorizo (a sausage whith paprika taste eaten cold) 7. Salpicon (a salade containing sea fruits like shrimps, lobster and tomatoes and paprika's very hot spices over it) 8. Calamares fritos (fried cuttle fish with lemon dressing) 9. Fritura de pescado (baked seafruits with lemon dressing: its mostly fresh fish or cod) 10. almendras fritas (pistachos, peanuts or sunflower pitts, all of them very very salty!)

Sightseeing by local bus

by HORSCHECK

Take a sightseeing tour on local transport, bus number 27. The bus serves a route along the Paseo del Prado and the Paseo de la Castellana between Estacion de Atocha and Plaza de Castilla.

On this route you can see many well known sights like the Museo del Prado, Plaza del Cibeles, Torres de Colon and the Estadio Bernabeu.

Last but not least you can do some people watching on the bus.

Please also check my transportation tip for more information about the local transport in Madrid.

It's All Inside!

by sharala about El Corte Ingles

If you go to any city of some size in Spain chances are you'll see the ubiquitous EL CORTE INGLES, seemingly the only department store chain in the nation. Are there any others??
Anyway, I made good use of the the lower level supermercado (supermarket) and found prices to be outrageously low for items like bread and cheese and whatnot. We enjoyed several picnic meals we packed ourselves courtesy of this well-stocked, well run market. Everything is available at ECI

From the Door of the Sol up to...

by Humberto_san

From the Door of the Sol up to the Plaza of Holy Ana, happening for the street Gardens you are going to meet the most animated zone, the whole tipismo, where students, modern and traditional submerge to create an atmosphere of the most enterteining. You can begin the night tapeando or supping on something typical of any region of Spain in one of his numerous restaurants of the street gardens or in the breweries of Holy Ana; or to leave yourself to surprise with some representation in the coffees theatre, cafeterias or places of glasses. And if on having gone out you meet someone of these solitary alleys, it reports to the 'Guiness' in order that you they should consider it to be a record, or asks to someone, since you have got lost. In this region you can allow you the luxury of remaining up to entered well the night without walking very much, only jumping of place in place, since the offer is the most ample.
