    BUITRAGO DEL LOZOYA

    Medieval Wall and Clock Tower

    It is the most unique and best preserved fortified ensemble of the Community of Madrid and was declared a national monument in 1931. Presumably, the original wall of tapestry was built by Muslims or in the early days of the Christian conquest between the 11th and 12th centuries. From this moment he has undergone several transformations, although always respecting the old layout. The wall is built by two main elements on a journey of 800 meters: the so-called low adarve and the south and southwest.

    The Clock Tower dates back to the 14th century. Built on a pentagonal flat, has a height of 16 meters. The clock located in the tower is from the mid-20th century, although its inner machinery corresponds to the nineteenth century.

    The low adarve can be traveled freely. Access can be made from two locations: next to Castle Square, either, desde el Jardín Medieval.
