Navalcarnero highlights by its tourist vocation. A clear commitment that goes through quality, gastronomy, care for its historical space, its architectural beauty and its remarkable tourist and cultural offer.
The Royal Town of Navalcarnero is today one of the six most important tourist places throughout the Community of Madrid.
This Madrilenian town, formerly part of the province of Segovia, protagonist of major historical events during his more than five centuries of existence, such as the marriage of King Felipe IV and the uprising against the French in the War of Independence, had a glorious past, being the main socio-economic and cultural axis of the southwest area of Madrid.
Navalcarnero still retains its purest Castilian village style, with a significant historical past, many artistic monuments, a typical gastronomy and traditions that make the town a notable tourist attraction.
The church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción was declared a Historic-Artistic Monument in 1982. Later in the year 2000, the Plaza de Segovia, the parish church and its surroundings obtained the declaration of Cultural Property in the category of Historical Set, a fact which has been a major boost to the tourist vocation of the town.
In addition to these two attractions, we suggest you also to visit the Plaza de San José, Puerta del Sol-Monument to Felipe IV, Casa de la Cadena, Casa de la Cultura, Municipal Theatre, Monumento a los Encierros, Plaza de Alonso de Arreo, Church of Covadonga and the Wine Museum.
