Agricultural tradition

Agricultural tradition

peq-3-ANTONIO(4)-t500Alameda del Valle, like the rest of the mountain towns that make up the Alto del Lozoya Valley, has a very marked agricultural origin from which very interesting vestiges are preserved. A tradition that has left its mark on the mood of the local population, on the architectural and cultural heritage and on the very configuration of the territory, as we know it today. 

After the decline of agricultural activity, livestock began to take special prominence, today observing a large number of heads of livestock in the meadows and pastures of the town, mainly cows and horses. The agriculture, practically testimonial at present, shows its importance in the past, still observing the old caceras and ditches and small orchards and fruit trees. 

Such is the rural character of this town, that its City Council has been betting for years on the recovery and enhancement of agricultural heritage, which otherwise would have been lost, and which must be preserved as a historical legacy of our town. The Traditional Arts and Crafts Collection, the Interpretation Center of Traditional Life, the documentary "La vida de Antaño" directed by José Antonio Vallejo or the Route of the Old Works, are performances that give a good account of this.
