Born and raised in a Madrid Mountains little town, I am a Licensed Mountain Guide in Madrid and a nature lover. Every day is a new adventure in these valleys, where peace and relax is guaranteed. I am passionate about my beloved mountains history, tradition, food and architecture and always willing to talk about it and share my local perspective. I am now working in different local projects like recovering traditional agriculture and also volunteering in a shelter. Let's enjoy the views, the air, and the local history together!! I have been offering guided hikes, horse riding excursions and other nature experiences for 7 years already but time has flown by :) and every day I am excited to see other people enjoying hometown's beauty

Where you'll be

Our excursion takes place in the16th century UNESCO World Heritage Town of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, located 45 kilometers northwest of the Spanish capital, Madrid.
