It is home of the Madrid Atocha railway station, the city's largest railway station. This share is issued to Jules Anspach, Mayor of Brussels. He effected massive changes to the urban landscape of Brussels, paralleling those by Baron Haussmann in Paris. The modern city remains largely Anspach's creation.
