Buitrago, a tourist destination
The town of Buitrago del Lozoya, located 75 Km. from Madrid, is one of the 42 municipalities that make up the northern mountain region of Madrid. In 1993 Buitrago was declared a Place of Cultural Value, in the Historical-Artistic Sites category.
Crossroads of cultures, Arabs, Christians and Jews lived together in Buitrago. Its streets reveal the signs of time throughout its history from its walled district, its Gothic church and the castle of the Mendoza family to the Picasso museum housing the collection of Eugenio Arias.
