Hayedo de Montejo is a Protected Natural Area of the Region of Madrid formed by an old meadow of beeches, oak trees and Pyrenean oak.
It is the first natural space in the region to be declared UNESCO Natural Heritage Site, a well-deserved recognition of its beauty and the great diversity of its flora and fauna.
Also named a Natural Site of National Interest, it is a privileged enclave to enjoy nature due to its great landscape and ecological diversity.
It is possible to visit the Hayedo de Montejo free of charge, guided by environmental educators from the Hayedo de Montejo Environmental Education Center, although the number of visitors per day is limited for conservation reasons.
To request a visit, it is necessary to register in advance through their website, or there is also the option of obtaining authorization in person on the day of the visit. To do so, simply request a visitor's permit at the Resource and Information Center of the Sierra del Rincón Biosphere Reserve, located at 64 Real Street in the town of Montejo de la Sierra in Madrid. Permits will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis from the time the office opens at 9:30 a.m. until they are sold out.
