“Head Peak”. Majestic view of the village, in the bottom of the ravine, and the valley of the Rio Dulce, since leaving the barrel of Pelegrina and Aragosa, to its mouth in the Henares River, through the terms of Mandayona and Villaseca de Henares.
no difficulty. Up the road, Argecilla direction and, when it reaches the plain, always take the path on the left. Approximately two hours round trip. You can even drive and almost reach the same peak.
“Rio Dulce Canyon”. To some 3 kms. de Mandayona, you reach the village of Aragosa, from where the march begins to Pelegrina, following the course of the river and passing through Los Heros (people already disappeared, where one wall is a hidden among the brambles) and La Cabrera.
At the end you can visit “BALCONY Rodriguez de la Fuente”, from where you can see waterfalls that form the ravine Gollorio going from the heights of the canyon ALCARRIA, very close to Pelegrina.
In this way we found a large colony of vultures, and it is nothing strange that you can see some deer and a wild boar on the stretch of Aragosa to La Cabrera.
Difficulty in the final stretch to overcome the barrel. At this point you can even make cycling. Some 14 kms. marching, more or less 4 hours. It is almost essential to leave a car at the end, BALCONY with Rodriguez de la Fuente, for the return.
Another possibility is to do it in two days: A stretch Aragosa La Cabrera, round trip, no difficulty, and on another day the section of La Cabrera until the end, also return.

EL CAMINO DEL CID
And they break the dawn and morning came;
the sun rose, God, that beautiful she pointed!
Castejon, all rose;
open the doors, They jump out gave
to see their fields and all their crops.
(To sing, 456)
Castejon de Henares, with category VILLA – still retains the court Rollo -, perhaps the quintessential village cidiano. Here was where, according to the Cantar de Mio Cid, made the first “settlement” outside the Kingdom of Castile and from where his cousin and lieutenant, Alvar Fáñez Minaya, he left “heat, Guadalajara to Alcala”, from where he returned with a fortune. Meanwhile EL CID “Castejon took his gold and silver”.
“O SAY CASTEJÓN,
WHICH it IS ON FENARES,
MIO CID lay on CELADA
THOSE WHO BRINGS WITH IT”
