Valle Alto del Lozoya
The Quadron can be considered to be formed by the main nucleus and two more neighborhoods, The Eras del Soto and Cobos. It is nestled in the Lozoya Valley, in the northern part of the Community of Madrid, in the Sierra Norte, in a place of extraordinary beauty. The valley is wide and clear. The territory, of high landscape value, it's beautiful, found populated with livestock tracks and glens. Its oak and scrathered forests make the area an ideal place for rest and quiet walks.
The origin of the village dates back to the Middle Ages and is linked to the employees in the Finca de Cobos, in the service of the Marques, as well as its geographical position, as a passing point for various livestock routes, among which was the Cañada Real Segoviana.
Its former denomination during the eighteenth century was Clevadrón, changing his name to El Cuadrón later.
Its main source of entry during the 19th century was its blend mines, located at the entrance to the village and currently sealed. Today, tourism is quite developed in this area and here we can find the Center for Environmental Education, located in its former schools.
Within its heritage we can find the Parish Church of Our Lady of Pilar, built in 1925 and built in stone, brick and wood.
