Autumn is coming! And with him, walks in the Sierra Norte de Madrid
The Sierra del Rincón is an ideal place to start your tour and, sometimes, Forgotten. Immerse yourself in their villages and valleys, and enjoy its tranquility, their people and their ancestral traditions, that contribute to the preservation of the life forms of the past. From its streets, you'll be able to peek into the Reserve of the biosphere of the Sierra del Rincón. In autumn, its landscapes are transformed into a palette of painted colors, among others, by abundant wooded formations of honey-soaking oak, wild pine pine forests, riverside forests and by the trees of the Hayedo de Montejo de la Sierra.
Also, we invite you to delve into the Robregordo Hollin, the best preserved in the Community of Madrid, splattered with countless masses of holly, a species of wild flora threatened. From the village of Robregordo, you'll be able to make a hiking trail to get to know this botanical treasure, whose fruits ripen in autumn.
Who would say you can walk through a Finnish forest without going to Finland? Well, that's the way it is.! In the Finnish Rascafría Forest, another great natural environment that gets this name for its great resemblance to Scandinavian thickets. It is a magical and secluded place that is reached by crossing the Bridge of Forgiveness, through the so-called Paper Road, who used the monks of the Monastery of El Paular to access the paper mill of Los Batanes, where they fabricated this resource.
However, the Sierra Norte de Madrid is much more than nature. It's also History. The Spanish Civil War is one of the milestones that have marked this area. Now that the heat goes down, it's the perfect time to follow in your footsteps, stepping on the soldiers' footsteps by the Water front and the Front of Somosierra, through hiking trails. And if you prefer an expert guide to take you along the war paths of the Sierra Norte, you can also opt for guided tours of "Walls of Buitragon: a entrenched people" and "Between trenches and water".
What else can you do in the Sierra de Madrid?... do you know the but? Autumn is also the season in which this fruit is harvested, a variety of Apple that is characterized by its exquisite taste and pleasant smell. Every year, this collection is accompanied by a party in the village of La Hiruela, to celebrate the good harvest and to value this variety of apples native to the Sierra del Rincón and other agricultural products from the area. So, if you like good food and enjoy good company, come to the La Hiruela's Gathering Festival of The Pero, held during the month of October, depending on the ripening of the fruit.
If you want to continue to know the traditional ways of life of the Sierra Norte de Madrid, hand in hand with those who know the most, its inhabitants, you'll also enjoy Madarcos yesterday and today. This fair, held in October each year, is a real day of recovery and value of traditions. Traditional music and dances, lifelong trades, Home and local cuisine... are some of the cherries waiting for you in Madarcos, the first weekend of October.
