Valdebernardo is a station on line 9 of Madrid Metro which runs under Indalecio Prieto Boulevard, in the Vicálvaro district of Madrid district. It is part of Tariff Zone A.[1]

The station opened its doors on 1 December 1998. The project leaders rejected the original name "Lucio de Mingo" (a famous military and war hero for some parts of the population) because of possible conflict. Valdebernardo, the name eventually chosen, means "Bernardo's Valley" and refers to the Barcelonian Bernardo Gomez, ancestor of the landlord.
