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!
