Until November 12, you can discover the city of Aranjuez, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2001, by taking a trip on the emblematic Strawberry Train.
During the weekends of this fall, travelers can recall the route of the first railroad in the Region of Madrid, built in 1851 by order of Isabel II to connect the capital with the Royal Palace of Aranjuez.
But that's not all, the Strawberry Train is a cultural experience that starts at the old Madrid-Delicias station, in the Railway Museum of Madrid, where a group of actors will join the journey to recreate the history of the train. Departure is at 10:00 a.m. and return is at 6:36 p.m., with an estimated travel time of about one hour.
Once you reach the city of Aranjuez, you can spend a day enjoying its magnificent cultural, natural and gastronomic attractions.
In addition to the usual itineraries such as "Fresas con Nata," "Fresas del Tajo," "Fresas Reales," "Nata del Tajo," "Nata Real," and "Fresas al Natural," this fall you will also have the opportunity to discover the new "Fresas con Música" route, which offers you the chance to participate in the XXX Festival de Música Antigua de Aranjuez, and the "Fresas Ciclistas" route, designed to explore landscapes of significant environmental and scenic value, including Aranjuez's groves and orchards.
On the way back, passengers can taste this famous delicacy of Aranjuez, which not only gives the train its name, but also adds a sweet touch to the end of the journey.
