Seven municipalities are part of this initiative whose only aim is to facilitate, to the users of public transportation, a guide for monuments and places of interest. A different way to discover the historical heritage of the region.

Since last year, the rail transport network provides its users the opportunity to learn more about the region exploring it thanks to the program 'Enjoy Madrid from north to south: Discover your monuments by regional railway'. This is the second phase of the plan that started in 2013 that allows discovering the monuments of the capital 'Metro a Metro'.

To do this, the Directorate General of Historical Heritage, brings you a set of cultural property belonging to eight municipalities of the region: Alcalá de Henares, Aranjuez, Cercedilla, Colmenar Viejo, El Escorial, San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Getafe y Móstoles.

Under the slogan 'Historical Heritage of Madrid: What you've ever seen it, like you've never seen it', you will have access to monuments and historical sites of recognized heritage value as well as discover a wide variety of cultural goods perhaps not so well known, but not means less important.

The suburban lines C-2 and C-7, will take you to Alcalá de Henares. There you can walk along the wall, the Cathedral and the Archbishop's Palace among others, even know the Roman City of Complutum. The C-3 line lets you know the monuments of Real Sitio de Aranjuez, whose natural environment was recognized in 2001 by UNESCO as a World Heritage Cultural Landscape. The Royal Palace, the Labrador House or Prince's Garden are just a small sample of the wonders that you will see.

With the C-8b line you will reach Cercedilla, a municipality located at the foot of the Sierra de Guadarrama, in the Regional Park of Cuenca Alta del Manzanares, whose location has made it one of the largest natural areas protected by the Region of Madrid. You will access to Colmenar Viejo through the line C-4, where both its historical heritage and its deposits will not leave you indifferent.
