Located in the middle of Madrid, the ward is formed by a strip between the avenue Calle de Méndez Álvaro (south-west), and the north-eastern area of Madrid Atocha railway station, that occupies great part of its territory. The northern border is at the square Plaza del Emperador Carlos V and the southern one in the avenue Calle de Pedro Bosch.
Home of Madrid Atocha, the main railway station of the city, the ward is also served by the Metro lines 1 (at Atocha and Atocha RENFE stations), 6 (at Méndez Álvaro station) and by several lines of a commuter rail network named Cercanías Madrid.
