Mount Abantos (abanto is synonymous with alimoche) is located at the beginning of the Sierra del Guadarrama from the south. The orientation of the sierra at this point is southwest-northeast, with the flights being made towards the southeast. At its feet is the monumental town of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, and the flight, of about 700m, offers spectacular views of the sierra and the monastery. Behind it we have the pine forests of Peguerinos, already in the province of Avila.
Access is by vehicle with the permission of the Town Hall of S. Lorenzo until we pass the port of Malagón, and then walk almost three kilometres on a gently sloping track.
