The Sierra de Guadarrama and literature

The Sierra de Guadarrama presence in our literature heritage is at least as old as our proper literature. Perhaps the first reference is at “The Hunting Book” by Alfonso XI, which describes the hunting animals, where to hunt them, and which tracks to take to find them. Later on, many books from the Middle Age talk about the Sierra de Guadarrama, being probably the most relevant “The Book of Good Love” (El Libro del Buen…

Sites of Cultural Interest

The Sierra de Guadarrama offers very high cultural values, mainly considering its Socioeconomic Influence Area. In terms of heritage, bridges, Churches, fountains, mills, laundries and other diverse constructions are featured and justify the visit to those Sierra villages.

In this area its tracing coincides with “the old road to Segovia”, climbing the pass at the Madrid side skirting along the slope. The pavement crossing the Enmedio Bridge (Puente de Enmedio) was built in the 18th century and corresponds to a cattle track named “Cañada de La Fuenfría”. Within the National Park several cattle tracks are catalogued.…
