Now it's possible to explore virtually the natural spaces of the Sierra de Guadarrama without leaving home, thanks to an innovative project to digitize tourist routes that shows the beauty of our Region. Discover with us the 15 routes mapped with Street View Trekker. Let's get started!
The Sierra de Guadarrama, included in the National Park of the same name, is opened to the eyes of the world thanks to this pioneering project to digitize tourist routes in natural areas. A total of 15 routes have been mapped with Street View Trekker, the Google's system for capturing images of the most spectacular and remote places on the planet.
In this way, the Sierra de Guadarrama becomes part of the group of natural spaces selected by Google to show the world. A project that started in 2012 with the Grand Canyon of Colorado, the Galapagos Islands, the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan, Venice or the Alhambra of Granada.
The routes mapped, and that anyone can already travel virtually are:
⋅ A stroll through Moralzarzal's jars
⋅ Climb to the Cañal Hill of Alpedrete
⋅ A walk through the Mediterranean mountain of Hoyo de Manzanares
⋅ Discovering the cattle farm of Los Molinos
⋅ From Miraflores de la Sierra to Soto del Real through the 'Hueco de San Blas'
⋅ The Valley of La Barranca of Navacerrada
⋅ From Soto del Real to Miraflores de la Sierra through the hermitage of Nuestra Señora del Rosario
⋅ The Victory path in Cercedilla
⋅ Visit to the white poplars of Guadarrama
⋅ Circular route of El Boalo-Cerceda-Mataelpino
⋅ The Rasos of Mataelpino
⋅ A walk through the trenches of La Jarosa in Guadarrama
⋅ Between quarries and meadows of Alpedrete
⋅ Ascent to the Port of La Fuenfría in Cercedilla
⋅ Visit to the Peñalara Glacier Circus
As we mentioned before, a tool called Trekker, developed by Google, has been used for the mapping tasks, to access in a respectful way to those natural spaces where a vehicle can't travel.
After three months of fieldwork, carried out by Navalmedio Naturaleza, the images have gone through another four months of computer work to achieve the final result that today is revealed.
It will no longer be necessary to put on your mountain boots to get to know the Sierra de Guadarrama. Discover the routes, paths and forest tracks of this natural space in Madrid without leaving home.
