Torrejón el Rubio. Parque Nacional de Monfragüe.

Torrejón has a privileged location close to Monfragüe National Park (less than 4 km away), inside the Biosphere Reserve that brings together man and nature.

The colours in Spring and Fall give it a unique harmony. In the Fall, the countryside starts to highlight its richness with acorns scattered in the wide slopes. In Spring, the blooming landscape, the smell of the rockrose flowers and the magic of the thymes bewitch the pastureland that blushes slowly into yellow shades.

Torrejón el Rubio was founded by the Arabs but no vestiges remain today from those times. Located between Plasencia and Trujillo, it was a resting area for those who made that journey by horse or on foot.

At the town you can enjoy resources such as:

Monfragüe Cave Painting Centre where tourists can enjoy one of the main heritages in the region.

Monfragüe Astronomy Observatory: new venue that intends to bring the beauty of the universe closer to the visitors at Monfragüe National Park. Our region is considered one of the best areas for the observation of the night sky in the whole Iberian Peninsula.
