In the year 2005 the Sierra del Rincón, where La Hiruela is located, became part of the global network of Biosphere reserves, being listed as such and internationally recognized in the UNESCO Man and Biosphere Programme.
Authentic Nature Reserve, La Hiruela has an enviable natural environment. Thanks to its secular isolation, it has managed to preserve an ecosystem with unaltered landscape values over the centuries. From the magnificent viewpoint of the port, we can contemplate a broken landscape of hills and mountains, forests and meadows,valleys and streams that will delight all trekking enthusiasts. The high course of the Jarama River, of clean and crystalline waters, and the numerous streams that run its term, mark the natural border with Guadalajara.
The Dehesa de La Hiruela, with prodigious Melojo and Albar oaks, is its most interesting natural space with a variety of vegetation.
Hazels, Birches, Junipers… and a whole concentration of Greenery make it more similar to northern Spain.
