Leganés, goyesque market in the neighborhood of la fortuna 2021

La Fortuna is a neighborhood belonging to Leganés, which is located in the northernmost part of the municipality. The neighborhood borders with Carabanchel (Madrid), from which it is separated by the M-40 highway, and with the park of Las Presillas in Alcorcón.

Although it belongs to the municipality of Leganés, a political decentralization has been carried out in order to provide the neighborhood with better infrastructures. On June 18, 1993, the La Fortuna District Board was created. Leganés was the first municipality in the Community of Madrid to create a district board, similar to those existing in Madrid capital.

In electoral results, La Fortuna has traditionally voted for center-left parties, a sign present in the presidencies of the District Board. In the 2007 municipal elections, the PSOE was the most voted force with 1,987 votes (40.15%), followed just ten votes behind by the Partido Popular with 1,977 (39.95%), Izquierda Unida with 438 (8.55%), and Unión por Leganés with 252 votes (5.09%).[2]
