TOURIST ROUTES

THE TAGUS ROUTE

The route begins following the course of the Tagus River, from its entrance into the Region of Madrid, where there are four delightful towns with outstanding monuments. They are frontier towns through which many different cultures and civilisations have passed, leaving an incomparable legacy.
As the Tagus has a considerable volume of water here, the riverside trees form a gallery, birches, elms, poplars, etc. and there are recreation areas ideal for resting and walking.

The towns in the Tagus basin in the Region of Madrid have a continental climate with average temperatures from between 2ºC below zero in winter and 30ºC in summer.
The river runs through a wide valley with very low ground. This influences the vegetation in the areas it passes through. The result is a wide, fertile lowland, entirely covered by different types of cultivated crops, generally irrigated crops, and also natural vegetation which forms shady wooded paths. The predominant crop is maize and cereals in the narrower areas of the valley. There are also fruit trees, vines and olive trees.

You can start off in Brea de Tajo and continue towards Estremera, Fuentidueña de Tajo and, lastly, Villamanrique de Tajo, or vice-versa.
