El Atazar Reservoir Community, created in April of 2000, consists of the following municipalities: El Atazar, El Berrueco, Cervera de Butirago, Patones, Puentes Viejas (with its four population cores: Cinco Villas, Mangirón, Paredes de Buitrago y Serrada de la Fuente) and Robledillo de Jara.

Located in the Lozoya’s Lower Valley, El Altazar Reservoir Community represents one of the most differentiated sub-regions inside Madrid’s North Mountain Range, where the Lozoya River and its waters turn into a resource of great importance. 
 
Water sports are the great appeal of this region: the calm waters are ideal for the sail, canoeing or wind-surf enthusiasts.
The adventurers can choose climbing, cavern exploration, paragliding or quad ridding, while the calmer can practice outside games or horseback-riding.
Hikers have a net of routes to discover the most attractive corners.
 
The region offers the traveller a rich and diverse architectonic and cultural heritage from the typical architecture Museums, represented by the cattle crushes, forges, traditional washing facilities and houses, without forgetting the tourist charm of the monumental hydraulic constructions.

 
 

Senda del Genaro (Path)

Within the Green Paths net of the Community of Madrid, the Senda del Genaro, with its 70 kilometers of journey, characterizes for being the one with the longest journey. It is classified by the Spanish Mountaineering Federation as “Senda de Gran Recorrido” that means: Long-Distance Path (GR-300).
The route roams along the environment that surrounds the Atazar Reservoir, the one with more water capacity in the Community of Madrid.
 
The path is characterized by the ethnographic and environmental values that can be appreciated along the path. Of great interest are: the hydraulic constructions associated to the water supply from the reservoir, the drover’s roads full of history, the abrupt and full of chromatic contrast views and a great variety of rocks, flora and fauna.


Territory Museum


Network of museums distributed in every town council, the ones that we have to highlight are: 
 
   
The Water and hydraulic heritage museum (El Berrueco), it is the entrance and Visitors Reception Office to the Community’s Museum net.
The Stone Museum (Mangirón), located in the old “Lavadero”, it shows different aspects of the “lavadero”, the stone and work of the quarries, as for the characteristics, uses and utilities of the different types of stones.
Traditional Play Park (Serrada de la Fuente), it reminds us the different games forgotten in time and gives us the possibility to enjoy playing in its recreational areas the petanque, horseshoes or toad in the hole.
Past forms of life Museum (Robledillo de la Jara), located in the old tile factory, it shows us the life forms and traditional jobs of the area.
The Sense Museum (Cervera de Buitrago), it has a sensory circuit that takes us to experiment sensations through our Smell, Touch, Hearing and Sight, by different interactive elements.
The Forge Museum (Paredes de Buitrago), it recuperates the figure of the blacksmith, its (original) work tools and the iron transformation process
Geological Hall (Patones), it will show us: the formation of the Lozoya’s Valley and its rocky structure, also the fossils, stones, and the planet creation or the Water circle between many other things.

The present tourism base in the Community is articulated around a diversified and wide lodging offer as well as of a restaurant industry with an important image of great quality gastronomy. Also in the sport tourism range there are different companies that offer specialized services, particularly around the nautical and sport uses of the reservoir’s waters.
