Madrid Metro System

Important Travel Information: Saturday & Sunday
Beatification of Alvaro del Portillo and Thanksgiving Mass
As many as 100,000 visitors are expected to attend the Beatification of Alvaro del Portillo (Saturday 27 September) and the Thanksgiving Mass (Sunday 28 September), therefore public transportation in Madrid will be busy.
- One of the closest metro stations to the area where the beatification and mass will take place is Campo de las Naciones, this is also the metro station for the IFEMA: Madrid Feria (venue for ESMO 2014)
- Both events commence at 12:00. However access is from 08:00 onwards. Currently, it is hard to say how much additional time you should allow to travel to ESMO 2014
- There may be buses taking attendees of the beatification and mass from outside the metro station. Congress delegates SHOULD NOT board theses buses, they will NOT be going to the congress venue! The venue is a short walk away and will be clearly signposted
- Further information will be communicated to all congress delegates during the event
