    La Hiruela

    The municipality of La Hiruela is located on the northeast edge of the Sierra Norte de Madrid, and inside the Sierra del Rincón Biosphere Reserve. The municipality is located between hills and rugged terrain of the East side of the Sierra de Somosierra, in the basin of the river Jarama.

    It has numerous examples of vegetation like a meadow of oak trees, copses of birch with Holly and yew,... Already in the surroundings of the village we can contemplate traditional meadows and orchards with abundant fruit trees.

    Despite no evidence of its origin, it is believed that the first settlement occurred after the Reconquest. Being so far away from the rest of the populations, had quite a lot of autonomy and had the jurisdiction of Villazgo, acquiring right to roll or pillory. His glen gained real rank due to his livestock importance.

    It is one of the best preserved villages of the Sierra Norte with an urban plot of great simplicity, formed by stone houses grouped in compact blocks that make their way to the small streets and gardens, meadows and fields.

    Of its heritage we can highlight its ethnological museum and its flour mill, that remind us of the traditional life of this charming village.
