Jacqueline Oglesby’s Cicerone guide to the Mountains of Central Spain is an ideal companion to discovering the grandiose peaks of one of Spain’s most unexplored but dramatic landscapes. The Sierras de Gredos and Guadarrama are the highest part of the long chain of hills and mountains which splits the big central tableland of Spain. Accessible from Madrid, the mountains are rarely visited by foreigners, despite several being en route to the coast and taking in medieval cities. The Sierra de Gredos are the highest and most inaccessible mountains in central Spain with many long approaches up wild valleys or spurs to spectacular corries backed by jagged arêtes. This section includes 37 walks of varying difficulty and is organized by geographical region.

The Sierra de Guadarrama, nearer to Madrid, offers more accessible and intimate walking opportunities with several high road passes and a good network of maintained footpaths winding their way through a rich variety of scenery from rolling ridges to tightly-packed granite towers. Explored in 34 different walks, the detailed route descriptions are accompanied by line drawings and photographs which give a flavour of the journey ahead.
