The vast metropolis of Madrid can trace its origins to the times of Arab Emir Mohamed I (852-886). He was responsible for building a fortress on the left bank of the Manzanares river. Later it became the subject of a conflict between the Christians and Arabs until Alonso VI conquered it in the eleventh century. At the end of the seventeenth century, a retaining wall was constructed for the defence of the new outlying districts, tracing the streets of Segovia, Toledo and Valencia. The famous main streets of the city, the Paseo del Prado and Paseo las Acacias, were built during the eighteenth century, under the reign of Carlos III.
