Spain

The name for the city of Madrid, which has been the capital of Spain since the 1600s, comes from the Arabic word, “magerit,” meaning, “place of many streams.” The Manzanares River flows from central Spain through Madrid and holds a good deal of historic and artistic significance despite its rather small size. Starting out as a citadel for the Moors, the city has overlooked or contained part of the river since the 9th century and has been the subject of many pieces of art, particularly for the 18th and 19th century painter Francisco de Goya.
