It is well known that Navalcarnero is a Land of Vinos. Do not go away without tasting them.
There is an anecdote that explains this very well: "It is said that the famous mayor of Móstoles, Don Andrés Torrejón, could not sign the band that declared the war to the French, when Napoleón invaded Spain, until he ate "Cocido" from Madrid until he burst with wine from Navalcarnero, the brave mayor stood up and signed the document"
Convinced? If you need more evidences, do not hesitate on stopping by the Museum of Wine. You will find from materials related to the wine manufacturing until curiosities less knowns.
Enjoy the Wine Routes of Navalcarnero and the taste of the so-called "Cuevas del Concejo", a wine land with Denomination of Origin of Madrid. In summer there are even hosted "Social Evenings of wine and jazz", which attracts many visitors every year. This together with the "Festival of the harvest" gave the town a great offerings of activities related with the wine. You cannot miss this unique opportunity!
The museum, installed in a former cave-wine house from the 19th century, is located in the square Alonso de Arreo, one of the most famous countrymen, who participated with twenty armed men in the Revolt of the Communeros. This event has been immortalized by Alberto Pirrongelly with a great mural.
Finally, do not forget that recently we have inaugurated the Centre of Interpretation of Navalcarnero in order to enrich the touristic experience. It is located in a farm house that has been refurbished and that preserves perfectly the traditional structure. It has well defined areas like the house, the wine house, the courtyard, the stable or the cave.
