Low Valley of the Lozoya
Berzosa del Lozoya
Berzosa del Lozoya is a mountain town located at the foot of the hills of the dead woman, also called Peña goat, in the Ayllón massif. The term has a vegetation composed of Turkey oak and pine forests and thickets of jaral. It is bathed by the Lozoya River and the river Riata, and the reservoir of El Villar sits in a part of the municipality.
Among the architectural heritage is the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption of the seventeenth century, fully restored. Several paths depart from the same urban nucleus, length and difficulty variable, and the landscapes of Berzosa del Lozoya are also a highlight of the mountains for outdoor activities such as paragliding, climbing, cycling or nautical activities.
One of the first information about Berzosa tells us that it was once part of the lordship of Buitrago, administered by the Mendozas during the 14th century. Most of the municipality's neighbours were engaged in agriculture and livestock.
Its geographical situation, the impressive popular architecture and proximity of the el Villar and El Atazar reservoirs make tourism one of its main economic engines.
