  • Wonderful natural protected area. It contains the highest peak of the Madrid region and of the Guadarrama mountain range: Peñalara (2,428 m). It contains some threatened endemic amphibian species that inhabit delicate aquatic habitats, especially along the edges of its lakes. Thus these areas should not be traded on. Try not to leave paths and especially avoid walking through wetlands. During winter, make sure to wear appropriate snow clothes and gear (hiking or mountaineering boots; ice ax and crampons if you intend on reaching the highest peaks).
  • This superb natural reserve is simply a beauty not far from Madrid. Parking gets full quite early. There´s a train station but requires booking in advance. Limited access to groups to preserve it.
