The access to Valle del Jarama is through exit 46 of the A-1 (Madrid-Burgos) to El Vellón. The term has several rural roads as the caminillo del Canal and various trails that favor the practice of outdoor sports activities, cycling, horse riding, hiking... Relaxing walks for the collection of wild fruits (mushrooms, asparagus, blackberries and sloes), bird watching, the study and cataloging of botanical species or the collection of minerals of great assortment. Visit its Muslim watchtower and the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción, from the 15th century.
From El Vellón and following the A-1 northbound, we take the detour (exit 51) to Torrelaguna, but before reaching it, we pass through Redueña, a unique enclave anchored to the foothills of the Sierra, and whose layout remains almost unchanged since the nineteenth century. In the town square, there is a path on the path of the Canal de Isabel II that connects Redueña and Venturada, which is signposted and adapted for the disabled.
We arrive at Torrelaguna, the most important town in the region. In addition to its cultural routes and its vast heritage, we recommend the walks and equestrian trails so as not to lose direct contact with nature.
We continue and, just five kilometers along the M-102, we arrive at Torremocha de Jarama. The town offers seven routes to enjoy its natural and historical environment such as the Calerizas, the mines or the route of the countryside.
We return to the M-102 and arrive at Patones de Abajo, which together with Patones de Arriba, an enclave declared a Historic Site of Cultural Interest, form the municipality of Patones, where the tranquility of its location and the preservation of traditional slate architecture, make the town a must visit.
