The landscape presents all its forms here: from the high mountain ranges to the plain. Snowy firs on high peaks along with the oaks of the Alcarria.

Scratch. “In these simple lines, it is not possible to summarize the beauty of the natural area of Rascafría, submerged in the most beautiful of the Lozoya Valley, at the foot of the Sierra de Guadarrama and next to the peaks and lakes of Peñalara. All this beauty led Enrique II to found here in the 14th century, the Monastery of Santa María del Paular, a jewel of monastic art that has a rich collection of paintings by Vicente Carducho. We can admire 16 of the 56 original paintings, on loan from the Prado Museum; the other 40 works were scattered in the troubled times of the Confiscation of 1836.
Rascafría is a very romantic corner, and for this reason, on Valentine's Day, the Archpriest of Hita is honored, making a dramatized tour, performed in poetic prose, in the real settings of the Book of Good Love. In autumn, hunting and mushrooms become absolute protagonists in the menus of its restaurants, without forgetting the precious trout from the Lozoya river. Rascafría has all the charm of a mountain town where you can enjoy the cool waters of the Lozoya River both in summer and in winter, walking and skiing on its snowy peaks ”.
Patones de Arriba. “Neither Napoleon found them ... or so the legend tells, since Patones de Arriba is a hidden place where you can enjoy a landscape and some constructions that will be unusual for those who are willing to be surprised in our Community. Walking Patones de Arriba is like visiting an open-air slate museum. It has the perfect touch of what is known as rural chic. Nothing better to whet your appetite than to walk the ecological path of El Barranco that separates the two Patones, the one from Below and the one from Above. A 750 m path from which you can see all the natural surroundings of this place. And to satisfy yourself, you will find a different gastronomic offer, with rural, intimate and romantic restaurants, surrounded by a natural landscape of mountains, valleys and reservoirs. It is true that the festivities of San Juan and the Carnivals are celebrated everywhere, but in Patones they have a special flavor due to the picturesqueness of its streets and because here they preserve all the traditions of yesteryear. ”
