Alcalá de Henares, meaning 'Castle on the river Henares',
is a Spanish city, whose historical centre is one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites,
and one of the first bishoprics founded in Spain.
Located in the Autonomous Community of Madrid, 35 km northeast of the
city of Madrid, at a height of 588 metres (1929 feet) above sea level,
it has a population of around 200,000, the second largest of the region
after the Spanish capital itself.
The city is generally known simply as "Alcalá", but "de Henares"
is often appended to differentiate it from a dozen cities sharing the name Alcalá
(from a Moorish Arabic word for fortification).
It is capital of Comarca de Alcalá.
