Las Trojes Rural House was a Castilian farming house which was constructed between dividing walls in the past centuries; it has been restored as a tourist lodging. During its restoration, the traditional construction materials in this area have been used: stone from this region, exposed wooden frames and ceilings, forged balconies, bars and handrails... All of it together with the different levels, rooms with big sloping roofs and its decoration with dried flowers, farming objects and cross-stitch pictures, give it a rustic, but clean, warm and functional air.
Tamajón is a village of 200 inhabitants, most of them are elderly people, in the region of the Sierra Norte (North Sierra) of Guadalajara. Despite its relative proximity to Madrid (100 kilometres away), this is a mountainous area which has the lowest population rate in Europe. It is the entrance to the traditional Arquitectura Negra (Black Architecture: houses of stone and slate). The houses which are made of stone of Tamajón, a lot of them with a coat of arms, will remind you of a more magnificent medieval past. Among its buildings, the most important ones are: Mendoza Palace, which is nowadays the Town Hall, and its Romanesque Church. Tamajón is surrounded by reservoirs, pine and oak groves, meadows full of holm oaks and prairies. There are some cart tracks and beautiful paths which must be discovered and covered by their visitors.
