The lavender fields of Brihuega (Show in Guadalajara)

One of the most beautiful experiences you can do every July in Guadalajara is to visit the lavender fields of Brihuega. With the arrival of the harvest the soft hills of the region are dyed purple, when the town dresses up and begins its famous summer festival. When we see the flowering, in July, how, we tell you.

The sunset is dyed purple

It is wonderful to watch the sunset in the lavender fields of Brihuega. The sunset is undoubtedly the best time to visit them, since before the sun and the high temperatures of summer do not see the best gala of these beautiful plantations.

Knowing in advance that the sunset is the best time We arrived at the lavender fields to be able to photograph them. Being July 30th are something we have to take for granted, but what surprised us most were thethousands of bees They were pollinating these shocking purple fields.

As if it were music, walking among lavender is listening to the buzz constant of the bees. At first it gave us a little respect to walk through these fields, but if you respect the bees and do not bother them, they do not have to bite you. But beware, every year more than one takes a peck for what they told us, so be careful if you get to disturb the bees.

We walk between the two main fields, one located in the GU-925 direction Solanillos del Extremo and another in the CM-2005 address Siguenza. We call the attention that they charge simply for walking through the countryside, € 2 to see two main fields, but if it is to take care of them and make them respect they are welcome.

Lavender festival

Every year Brihuega brings a famous musician to his festival, but this is not the most important, the best is where it is celebrated, in the middle of the lavender field. Besides, everyone who visits the festival has to be dressed in white, something that gives a very special touch to the day of the concert.
