of residents work or study within the city, and has mitigated its transformation
into a commuter town. The increase in population has led to the construction
of numerous access roads, an increase in available public services, and
the creation of new neighborhoods at the end of the 20th century.

it was only a small village, one of its two mayors, Andrés Torrejón,
declared war on France, following the uprising the same day in Madrid which
started the Peninsular War. A resident of Móstoles, Manuela Malasaña,
became a popular heroine of the uprising that day; a subway station in
Móstoles and a neighbourhood in Madrid are named after her.
Famous people from Móstoles:
Real Madrid and Spanish players: Iker Casillas and Ruben de la Red, 2005
European Gymnastics Champion Rafael Martínez, and actor and TV presenter
