Patones de Arriba – another day trip from Madrid

June 19, 2013

There’s a lovely little town up in the north of the Madrid community called Patones de Arriba.

You can get there by car or (fortunately for us non-car-owning types) by public transport. Here’s a new article I wrote about it for Vaya Madrid: The Kingdom of a Handful.

The interesting thing about writing the article, for me, is that everything about the place is apparently just hearsay and conjecture. I couldn’t find much of anything that seemed like solid information.

Anyway, here’s another photo that I took in the 5 minutes of sun we had on an otherwise rainy day.

That’s about the whole extent of the town! Nice place!

For more day trips, check out El Pardo, Cercedilla, and Manzanares el Real. And feel free to hit me up with any questions you may have in the comments.

How did I end up in Spain? Why am I still here almost 20 years later? Excellent questions. With no good answer... Anyway, at some point I became a blogger, bestselling author and contributor to Lonely Planet. So there's that. Drop me a line, I'm happy to hear from you.
