Los diez pueblos menos habitados de la Comunidad de Madrid

A few kilometres away from Madrid are different localities whose population not reaches 100 inhabitants. These are corners because of its charm, location and possibilities are worth visiting. The website Sierra Norte, has been made a list of the ten less inhabited villages of the Region of Madrid, do you dare to cross them?

In the Lower Valley of Lozoya, very close to the largest reservoir of the Region of Madrid, El Atazar, there are two towns that are part of this particular list of towns less populated of the region: El Atazar and Robledillo de la Jara. The first, which gives its name to the reservoir, due to its location is the perfect setting to practice water sports like sailing, windsurfing or canoeing, but also to enjoy cycling or walking along the different routes and paths. Meanwhile, in the town of Robledillo de la Jara, not only enjoy its fantastic landscapes in a crowded environment of abundant vegetation, but can also take a trip in time thanks to the Museo de las Formas de Vida del Pas (Museum of Ways of Life from the Past), which it is part of the Tourist Dinamization Plan El Atazar Reservoir called 'Territorio Museo' (Territory Museum).  

The Middle Valle of Lozoya, hosts one of the entry points most frequented from the north, the Port of Somosierra. This is where we find five locations in our special getaway, whose populations don't exceed 80 people. Charming corners that offer the chance to enjoy in touch with nature and discover its historical heritage. La Serna del Monte proposes us two marked paths: the path of Dehesilla and the Mirador. In Robregordo you can spend a family day at the Recreation Area El Plantio or stroll through the Dehesa Boyal. Pick up your camera and take the opportunity to immortalize the flora and fauna of the area. Somosierra, one of the towns, houses in its small museum remains one of the most important battles of the Napoleonic invasion. But as in the above populations, its excellent location makes the area the perfect place for horseback riding. In La Acebeda you will find the largest forest of holly trees and in Madarcos, the town with less inhabitants of the region, to enjoy a pleasant walk along the trails, close to rivers.    

Finally, the Sierra del Rincón, which was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in June 2005, offers us the opportunity to learn the three locations that close the list offered by the web portal Sierra Norte. A wonderful location with spectacular landscapes and diversity of ecosystems. Don't hesitate and enjoy a break of rural tourism in Horcajuelo de la Sierra where you can also go hiking, visit the Ethnological Museum, or discover the Valle de los Sue (Valley of Dreams) located in Puebla de la Sierra, or go visit to La Hiruela, one of the best preserved villages of the Region of Madrid, which has kept intact its urban structure with stone houses, adobe and oak wood.  

Don't think twice and explore different charming places of the Region of Madrid. Relax in these places where time seems to stand still.
