The Cañaveral is the only one that has not been affected by the ruling of the Supreme Court of 2012. And it has the latest large finalist floor bag available in the south of Madrid.

The pressure of demand on prices has not been expected. In addition, in El Ensanche de Vallecas, fully consolidated, there are few plots for sale.
