Tour through Madrid’s villages

Published on October 17, 2016 by Madrid SmartRentals

One of the greatest pleasures of visiting Madrid in Autumn is being able to visit the charming towns and villages you can find just next to the city. Today we’re going to suggest a tour through Madrid’s villages, so you can get to know all the secrets and different tourist attractions.

Tour through Madrid’s villages

You can get the Villa Card with the programme “Villas de Madrid” (Madrid’s villages), that searches to promote and put energy into the localities of Nuevo Baztán, Rascafría, Buitrago de Lozoya, Colmenar de Oreja, Navalcarnero and Chinchón.

This card is very easy to use, and gives the user the opportunity of having access to special discounts, promotions in activities, museum tickets and other touristic attractions.

Six charming towns

The before mentioned six villages of Madrid offer visitants a perfect way to get to know the environment of the Spanish capital, and to go back in time.

  • Buitrago de Lozoya: This is the only town of the Autonomous Community of Madrid that conserves its city wall completely intact. It’s a National Monument since 1931. A must if you have some time to spare in your visit to Madrid
  • Rascafría: This village counts with the El Paular Monastery (one of the most important ones of the North side of Madrid). Located in the Guadarrama Mountain Range, this village is surrounded by natural beauty.
  • Nuevo Baztán: The establishment of the old town of this village is due to the politician and Spanish writer Juan de Goyeneche, that created it at the beginning of the 18th Century completely from scratch as the place of residence of the labourers that worked in the glass factory located in that area. We recommend a visit to its museum.
  • Chinchón: In addition to its famous square (Plaza Mayor), in Chinchón you can also visit the astonishing castle of the Counts of Chinchón, the Clock Tower, the Las Clarisas Convent, or the Nuestra Señora de la Asunción church. Its old town is considered historical and artistic heritage since 1974.
  • Colmenar de Oreja: You can’t miss this village in Comarca de las Vegas with its old city (Heritage of Cultural Interest since 2013). Let its beauty from another era surround you.
  • Navalcarnero: As we showed you in this post, Navalcarnero is, apart from a beautiful village, one of the most important wine producers in Madrid and Spain.
