Two villages in Madrid have been chosen among the 100 most beautiful in Spain

The travel experts of National Geographic magazine have used the criteria of “small size” and “cultural richness” to select the 100 most beautiful villages of all Spain, among them, 2 villages in Madrid have managed to get on the list.

Buitrago de Lozoya has been selected as the third most beautiful town in Spain by this magazine, only behind Santillana del Mar in Cantabria and Ayllón in Segovia.

The first of the requirements to be included in this list is the size of the town, that is, that the population does not reach 2,000 inhabitants. And as for the second requirement, its cultural richness, has played in its favor its 800-meter long wall and three access gates that the magazine considers one of its greatest attractions and that makes it one of the most visited medieval villages of Madrid.

The other town to sneak into the list is Chinchón, with its unmistakable colorful balconies surrounding its incredible Plaza Mayor, has managed to be ranked 31st on this list. Its cultural richness, such as its irregular, medieval-style Plaza Mayor, with its galleries, balconies and portals, has helped it to be considered for the listing. As well as the Augustinian Monasteries.

Remember that we usually schedule outings to Buitrago de Lozoya with hiking around its incredible wall, you can check the dates and other routes in our Hiking section.
