Location of the Navacerrada Pass

In 1788, it replaced the Fuenfría Pass as mountain pass in the route crossing the Sierra de Guadarrama connecting the Spanish cities of Madrid and Segovia.[1] The saddle point lies at 1,858 metres over sea level.[1] It is located in the border between the province of Segovia and the Community of Madrid. The route consists of the M-601 [es] road in the Madrilenian side and the CL-601 [es] in the segovian side. As of 2019, several of the Alpine buildings erected in the surroundings are derelict.[2]
