The Manzanares River sits on a basin 69 kms which starts at 2,260m above sea level in the Sierra de Guadarrama, and ends at the Jarama River 527m above sea. Between 2003 and 2007 it carried out underground work on the closest area of Madrid (around the highway of M -30 in the area of the river), works that made possible the elimination of surface traffic and the consequent release of more than fifty hectares of land previously occupied by driveways. This surface other joined almost a hundred hectares corresponding to different soils underutilized adjacent to the highway. One of our segways tour goes to one of the newest areas of our city: Madrid Rio; a huge leisure and cultural enclave that includes historical monuments (Puente del Rey, de Segovia y de Toledo) and leisure areas as Madrid`s beach and bike`s roads and routes. It’s a special park to enjoy the time with childrens. They will have fun in 10 playgrounds to be found along the Pine Park, all with swings made from sustainable, natural materials such as wood and hemp rope, forming webs, hammocks, hanging bridges and climbing vines. Each zone has different characteristics according to age. Adults can enjoy as well, with a wide cultural offer being the main center the Matadero Madrid that hosts exhibitions, music festivals, theater and gastronomy in a huge cultural area, one of the references in town

She has been imposed five other spanish candidates: Maria Isabel; Nana Electric; Xuso Jones; Salvador Beltran and Maverick.
His song “Say Yay” has won the favor of the jury and audience; the vote was decided by combining the votes of the tv audience (40 percent), the international jury (30 percent) and a jury of artists present on set. Barei defends his song as "a very international proposal" and "pop electronic bases and a very modern sound, I think it's a song that everyone can relate to, that speaks of never giving up." When she was only just turned of age she won the Benidorm Festival and she already has two albums on the market, "never to return Ticket" (2011) and “Throw the dice”(2015).
