NATURE AND RURAL HERITAGE IN THE SIERRA DEL RINCÓN BIOSPHERE RESERVE
The Green Magic of the Sierra del Rincón
There are places where human relationship with the environment is respectful and sustainable. This happens with La Sierra del Rincón and was therefore declared a Biosphere Reserve in the year 2005 by UNESCO.
This tour mixes unique places of great beauty; magical places such as El Hayedo de Montejo or samples of traditional architecture such as the towns of Prádena del Rincón and Montejo de la Sierra.
A must-see route in one of the most beautiful and unknown places in the Community of Madrid.
The municipality of Prádena del Rincón constitutes next to Horcajuelo, one of the gateways to the Sierra del Rincón and will be the beginning of our route.
In addition to traditional architecture, the highlight of this town is The Church of Sto. Silos Sunday. During restoration work initiated in the year 2011, real jewels were found that were hidden, such as gothic wood carvings, remains of a medieval necropolis (S.XII- Xv), 69 pieces of the main altarpiece of the church, two groups of wall paintings, the remains of an oven and several molds that were part of a bell repair shop. It is one of the few complete ringers of bells found in Spain and dates from the S. XVI.
La Sierra del Rincón is home to the most unusual natural area of the Community of Madrid, The Beame of Montejo de la Sierra, one of the southernmost besans in Europe, a relict forest inherited from colder times. The mix of colors and the magical atmosphere will not leave us indifferent. The murmur of the Jarama River accompanies us throughout the route.
Once the visit to this beautiful Hayedo is over, we will travel to the municipality of Montejo de La Sierra, where we will replenish forces with a base lunch of local products. Throughout the afternoon we will walk with a guide along the Paseo de la Ermita de Nazareth and already to finish, we will return by bus to the capital.
