  • It's a beautiful place for an easy hike. Once you reach the summit of Peñalara keep going as there is an interesting pass with large boulders that makes it fun for newbies. It's a protected area so don't strand away from the path and please don't litter. There are several fountains which come from the river going down the mountain, you can use them for drinking but still try to bring plenty of water. Additionally it's better to rent a car as the bus service is highly unreliable, we were stranded for 5 hours and it's not the first time.
  • Beautiful park near Madrid. With a large fauna diversity.
  • A beautiful place to go hiking! Beware, in the winter months the place is covered in snow!
  • Just half an hour away from Madrid, you can be above 2k :)
