  • Bronze sculpture of the "perrero" depicting the most characteristic character of Miraflores de la Sierra. The figure of the perrero appeared in the time of the French occupation when the village was ranted out by Napoleonic troops. It is the same night knowing the fear that the French had of the bulls, the inhabitants came up with the form of a group equipped with cowbells on their backs simulating a herd of bulls (or cows). Making as much noise as possible, they approached the camped French, making them believe that a herd of stamped bravado cattle was pounced on them which made them rush their escape. It was also very well known because césar Millán (the dog charmer) was in Spain, was in Miraflores and put a picture of him in this square.

  • As there is not much to do in the village, we follow the circuit and read the signs. The story of the perrero is funny, since it is a very imaginative idea against the Bad French.

  • I admit that what most caught our attention was that big hat and we stopped to read the poster with the explanation. It has encouraged us to return to Miraflores for the pilgrimage.
