Buitrago del Lozoya a day trip

Buitrago de Lozoya is one of the charming villages in Madrid.  It was declared of Cultural interest on March 11 of 1993.  Buitrago de Lozoya is famous for its enclosed walls and its stone buildings.  The surrounding Lozoya River gives the village a certain air of Medieval times.

Ron, Mel and I had an enjoyable day excursion, where we started with lunch in a typical bar in the plaza with the wonderful coincidence of a bright, sunny, and warm December day.  It gave us the opportunity to eat on a terrace with the accompaniment of a guitarist that sang and played for the public.

Here are some of our pictures:

Inscribed on the grounds as we entered the village, the MadroƱo tree and the bull, symbols of Madrid.

Playful lizards...

Views along the Lozoya river...  The bright sun showed beautiful reflections on the river.

The walls...

Just having fun.

Some of my tricky shots:

Getting out from a labyrinth was no problem.

Mel thanks Ron for taking us to Buitrago de Lozoya where we spent a joyful filled day.

Time to say goodbye to Buitrago de Lozoya...

Family being united is a beautiful thing and most so when it happens on a special occasion.
