San Isidro 2022: guided tours in Torrelaguna and Torremocha del Jarama

 

The towns of Torrelaguna and Torremocha del Jarama are offering a series of guided tours on the ocasion the 4th anniversary of the canonisation of San Isidro, a unique opportunity!

This year marks the 4th centenary of the canonisation of San Isidro Labrador, on 15 May 1622, and both municipalities have organised a calendar of guided tours that aim to delve deeper into that historical period and its heritage legacy.

During the month of May, Torrelaguna offers two guided tours a day, on the 14th, 21st and 28th. The meeting point is the Plaza Mayor. The tour will take in the old quarter, visiting the church of Santa María Magdalena, a Gothic jewel in our region and closely related to Cardinal Cisneros. Other points of thematic interest will also be visited, such as the convent of the Conceptionists, the alhóndiga, the Puerta de Buitrago or the hospital of the Santísima Trinidad.

For its part, Torremocha del Jarama will receive visitors for these visits on the 15th, 22nd and 29th. The Romanesque church of San Pedro and the old quarter of the town will be visited. Attention will also be paid to its rural surroundings, to the old farming areas, until the ancient remains of the Carrabus canal, dating from the 18th century, are located.

These visits allow a comprehensive approach to the history of San Isidro and Santa María de la Cabeza as well as a historical tour of the area. On the border between Castile and Al-Andalus, with Toledo recently taken, attention will also be paid to the orography, to the remains of the rural world that have survived and to all traces that, from the present, refer to that convulsive historical moment.

The visits will continue throughout June and until September. Check all the information and, to prepare your visit, don't forget to book by writing to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
