Buitrago is a constant swarm all year long with cultural activities, festivals, markets, fairs and festivities in an unbeatable setting.
The mountain range is the best atmosphere when summer comes. In Buitrago you can enjoy theatrical tours or night-time jazz concerts at the wall as well as the Marquis of Santillana Music Festival 15th August is the date of the patron festivals in honour of Our Lady of the Assumption and San Roque when the entire town gets out into the street.
The walled grounds and medieval castle offer the best backdrop for any celebration such as the living Nativity Scene during the last fifteen days of the year and the medieval fair which is held at the beginning of September and has become a reference for medieval fairs throughout the Autonomous Region of Madrid.
One good way to get information is to visit the Tourist Information Office which is also used as a municipal exhibit hall. Check out the calendar of activities because the offering is quite extensive and attractive.
