A Plaza Mayor worthy of the limelight


With an urban centre declared a Historical-Artistic Site in 1974, Chinchón is one of the most beautiful towns in the south east of Madrid, in the basin of the Tajo-Jarama rivers and just 45 kilometres from the capital.

Its Plaza Mayor , often used as a film set, has a strong cast of emblematic restaurants and plays host to the famous bullfights of Chinchón. However, its cuisine is one of the main tourist attractions: wood-oven roasts, garlic soup, cocido, convent-made pastries and the product that brought it the town fame: anise.

Do not forget to visit the "La Posada" Ethnographic Museum,, Casasola Castle,, The Church of the Asunción,, Lope de Vega Theater, Augustinian Convent (National Parador), The the Convent of the Order of Saint Claire and and the Castle of Los Condes.. You can also discover natural spaces such as Lagunas Casasola and San Galindo or El Pingarrón.
