Singular trees

Guadarrama boasts a varied range of landscapes and ecosystems in its territory.

The major altitudinal difference between the plateau areas, where grazing areas predominate and are traditionally used for livestock farming, and the mountain range area with the summit of Cabeza Líjar (1824 m) as its highest point, means that a great variety of tree species are developed.
