Brea de Tajo owes its name to the nearby river (the Tagus), although it has no direct contact with it. We are in farming land, a mosaic of colours between the summer gold of the crops, the red and grey of the earth and the green olive groves and vineyards; in the heart of the wasteland ecosystem, with holy oaks, olive trees, vines and centenary oaks.

The sumach is an unusual species profuse in this municipality. It is a bush which grows up to 3 metres in height. It is at its best in autumn when the reddish fruit covers the plant. It can be found along the borders of fields and paths. For centuries it was used for dying and tanning skins.

In Brea there are several relaxation areas. At the town entrance, a pine forest with tables and benches, and another zone next to the San Isidro Hermitage.
Walking and cycling are ideal ways of enjoying the surroundings, in particular the Robledas and La Tordera Routes, described in the section “Routes”, next to the Royal Soriana Eastern Livestock Track on its way through Brea. You can also do the La Campiña Route or the three sections of the Royal Soriana Eastern Livestock Track.
