  • The mountains of Madrid seen to reach the Natural Park is beautiful; but much more when I joined and walk along the trails to see the Rio Duratón and its distant, deep wells with crystal clear blue waters. Don't miss the visit to the Hermitage of San Frutos. Birds few, only a vultures. The trails are uncovered but allow walking. It is not cancelled to enter.

  • When you'll see natural parks of all Spain interpretation Center tends to be in the same place that you go to or very close to a few meters, and the first surprise is that it is fifteen kilometers in the center of Sepulveda which already makes you enter the town with the parking problems associated , and already in the Center in my case us attended a Lord quite unfriendly that seemed that you cost give us them explanations for visit them sickles, you dan a map and by the visit of the Center and by the projection you charge a euro by person, even with all this there are places natural that are of forced visit and this is one of them , simply spectacular with some views for stay is minutes and minutes contemplating the panorama and to them vultures to ones few meters flying over, without any doubt the site more spectacular is the viewpoint and the Hermitage of San fruits, for get until the parking, there is that take a detour from Villaseca a track disastrous full of potholes of 3.8 Km until get to the parking where there is that leave the car and follow walk and lower until it Hermitage of San fruits , approximately ones 900 meters of pedregal, carry footwear comfortable and very important carry water especially if bear children, since to the upload of turned it going to need, but deserves the penalty do a bit of exercise and enjoy of this impressive spot.

  • Amazing natural park with lots of vultures nesting on the cliffs. We did a canoe route with a local guide (in Spanish only) that was just amazing.
  • A spectacular gorge and river running through this beautiful natural park. Lots of trails for walking which take you up and close to the vultures which nest on the cliff tops. Also great for picnics alongside the river in spring and summer.
  • Great landscape with a lot of wildlife
  • Muy bonito, totalmente recomendable su visita.
  • Beautiful scenario and monastery
