Throughout the year, restaurants offer a selection of the best recipes prepared with the natural ingredients found in the forests. All marinated with the best wines of 'Denominación de Origen Vinos de Madrid'. One of the best times to visit Rascafría are the months of October and November, coinciding with the Gastronomic Days of Mushrooms, Hunting and Wine.
Although the offer of natural tourism that Rascafría and its surroundings have is very wide, we recommend that you choose one of the "Green Routes" as the one that starts from the Puente del Perdón, a pleasant path that leads to the Arboretum Giner de los Ríos, a botanical garden on the banks of the Lozoya River. You can also head to the Natural Park of Peñalara, one of the most valuable places in the Community of Madrid. Inside is the highest peak in the region and there are species of flora and fauna of great value.
Rascafría's calendar is full of festivities. If you like to enjoy good food outdoors, do not miss the festivity of La Virgen de Gracia and San Roque. It is held in mid-August and features parades, heifers, sports competitions, musical performances, caldereta, chocolatada and children's contests.
To enjoy the folklore of the region, a visit to the Virgen del Rosario is a must. It takes place at the beginning of October. Religious acts, aperitifs, contests, cultural exhibitions and popular dances are organized.
In the presbytery of the Church of San Andrés plays and performances and events of cultural and recreational character are represented. There is a great multitude of cultural activities that take place in the Corral de Comedias, such as the nationally recognized Folk Festival of the Sierra Norte.
