Sierra de la Cabrera
The municipality of Valdemanco, it is one of the villages of Madrid that is located in a small valley nestled between the Sierra de la Cabrera and Mondalindo peak. Its term is markedly mountainous, summits reaching 1,838m altitude, being its main stream the Albalá, belonging to the basin and Miraflores - Guadalix. Several paths run through the term, of marked interest in the practice of hiking, as is the case with the long-haul road (GR 10), La Cañada Real Segoviana, etc.
Popular legend says that, in the 16th century, a neighbor of Bustarviejo named Juan Valdés nicknamed "the manco", unable to do fieldwork, he built a sale to 5 km from his village, where later would their daughters settle. Valdemanco is mentioned for the first time in the Book of Monteria (1312-1350). Centuries later the town is still referred to as a set of houses dependent on Bustarviejo. It won't stop relying on it until 1840, when he built his own town hall. The railway line connecting Madrid with Burgos passed through this town and this increased trade in the area as they used this to output the product from the granite quarries of the territory.
Among its resources we can find the Church of The Virgin of Carmen and several hiking trails among which the bank's route stands out, that gives us the opportunity to climb to the highest bank of the Community of Madrid, from where we get stunning views of Madrid's Sierra Norte.
