La Sierra de Guadarrama, commonly known as the Sierra de Madrid is the collection of mountains surrounding Madrid from the north, which was the reason why the Spanish capital was founded, by the Muslims, to survey the Sierra itself! It is part of the Sistema Central, where it sits between the Sierra de Malagón and the Sierra de Somosierra in its strictest definition but also includes them along with the Sierra de Aylón in its widest acceptation where it becomes the neighbour to the mighty Sierra de Gredos.
La Pedriza is such an important part of the Sierra de Madrid that we have a dedicated page for it.
