Iglesia San Salvador

Reviewed By MadridJosefina - Germany

La Iglesia de San Salvador, que está ubicada en el centro de Leganés, es una de las obras más hermosas de todo el barroco español. La contemplas por fuera y no te imaginas los tesoros que guarda en su interior. !!Su interior es más que magnífico!!. Es la iglesia en la que se casó hace unos años, un primo mío, y ahora hemos vuelto a visitarla, con la familia, en estos días navideños.
El templo, de cruz latina, consta de tres naves. El exterior presenta tres puertas de granito, y una esbelta torre de ladrillo revocado, con planta cuadrada y rematada por un interesante capitel.
En el interior destacan los tres impresionantes retablos de José Benito de Churriguera, principalmente el Retablo Mayor, el del Carmen, situado en el lateral y el de San José, y así hasta completar un total de doce retablos. También conserva en sus Paredes doce lienzos de pintura exclusivamente religiosa siendo el más importante el Retrato de San Pedro de Arbuses. Otra de las joyas de esta iglesia es el órgano.
La Iglesia San Salvador se puede decir que es el principal punto de interés turístico en Leganés, (está cerquita del Ayuntamiento de la ciudad). !!Imperdible en la ciudad!!.
La entrada es gratuita.

Sambil Outlet Madrid

Sambil Outlet Madrid is a shopping center that has 3 levels, 130 shops and 2,300 parking spaces that represent the best offer of fashion outlets in Madrid. Enjoy a revolutionary concept of shopping, leisure and entertainment, which brings together in one place Outlet shops, leisure area with cinemas and the largest wind tunnel in Europe.

I visited the Outlet on inauguration day. At first, I was overwhelmed by the number of people that went there but then I really enjoyed everything this shopping center has to offer. The hallways were super wide which allowed those massive amounts of people to be comfortable. I left with a bunch of bags due to the amazing deals that I received from the shops. There are many brands that have opened their first outlet store here in Sambil, so you feel like a winner when you grab a deal such as this one.
I will definitely return when I go back to Madrid in order to find those hidden gems at affordable prices!

Estadio Municipal de Butarque

Reviewed By Bozeman-Dublin - Dublin, Ireland

I went to Butarque to see Leganes against Eibar and even though the home side lost and there was no happy ending, I really enjoyed the day.
It's a proper little community stadium this one with great views of the action. Intimate and cosy, you feel a part of the game unlike the way most modern arenas have you sitting up with the Gods or perched behind a running track.
The place is spotless and well maintained. It looks like a recent facelift, perhaps to bring the ground up to Primera Liga standard after their promotion?
The crowd were very friendly and welcoming to a tourist like me and as I said, I felt like I was in a real community club surrounded by locals and families.
About a 20 minute train ride on the C5 from Atocha costing €1.85. Get off at Leganes station or the one before it is better- Zarzaquemada where if you turn left at the station entrance by the big clock you can see the stadium and a path through a small park leads you right there. So easy. About a ten minute walk and you can't go wrong as you see the floodlights and grandstand all the way.
So if you're looking for top flight football in an intimate setting, I heartily recommend Leganes!
