La puebla de la sierra
I did this trip with Ara, the author of the great blog Esto no es lo que pareze. Ara is another passionate about travel and photography, and in fact we planned this trip as a photographic getaway for two. A festival of clicks, games with the camera and whatever else, without having to wait for the others. The truth is that not everyone understands the idea of taking pictures, so when you get together with someone who has the same tastes as you… it can only give you satisfaction. Be sure to visit his blog. And now let’s get down to business, I’m getting confused.
From the Parque de los Avellanos we confirm on the map that the village is 800 meters away, but we do not see it because there is a big curve that hides it. Because of its proximity we decided to leave the car in the park and walk up the road.
The history of Puebla de la Sierra begins in the twelfth century when several settlements were made for defensive reasons, although it is believed that its origin may have been Arab. After the Reconquest it was repopulated with dark stone buildings and wooden details, and so the architecture of the village is maintained for the most part.

We drive into the village and start looking for a place to park: it is not crowded, but there are not too many options to leave the car… we go a little further, we see a perfect spot in front of a bench, and there we stay. We get out of the car and realize that we almost didn’t park in the Plaza Mayor.
We arrive at lunchtime, so the whole town smells of food… in front of the church we even discover the place where the rich barbecue had been prepared, the aroma of which haunts us through the narrow streets.
We started to wander through the narrow cobbled streets aimlessly; sooner or later this way you will go through the whole village, from top to bottom, there is nowhere to get lost. Notice the very curious peculiarity of many houses: downstairs they are covered with stone, but the upper part is left uncovered and you can see the brick. At first we thought it was negligence, but we realized that it is repeated in many houses, even in the oldest ones.
On the other hand, the roads are not very frequented – mostly by locals – and with impressive views, because of the solitude that often reigns along the road, and the exclusive beauty of remote places…

Backpack ready with some sandwiches, some pipes, some fruit and the camel full of water, I left mini murzielaguita in bed in the custody of his father and I went to pick up Ali to go to the Sierra. It was Easter Monday and we didn’t get up too early, so we didn’t know what we might find on the road. But fortunately, what we found was few people (very few) and a sunny day with some impressive calima.

Crossing the bridge of the reservoir, we parked on one side and we approached to enjoy the wonderful landscape composed of Roman bridges and the Lozoya River. From this place there are different hiking trails. In fact they asked us if we were going to do any of them in case we knew where they started from.
I don’t know why they listened to the civil governor at the time when he asked for the name to be changed. I can’t think of a MORE TOP and unforgettable name for a town as original as Puebla de la Sierra.
