A Day in Chinchón

Not far away from Aranjuez it is located a small town named Chinchón, with a population of about 5,000 people.

Chinchón is famous for its Plaza Mayor. It is gorgeous! In the picture you can see some tables and chairs on Plaza Mayor and -in the background- Iglesia de la Asuncion, which is elevated.

During my visit to Chinchón, there were bullfights taking place at town, so Plaza Mayor was prepared for these events.

Tower of the old church Nuestra Señora de Gracia. The church was destroyed in the past, but the tower was rebuilt.

There is a said: Chinchón has a tower without church and a church without tower, it is about the tower of the pic, which has no church, while Iglesia de la Asunción -very close from here- has no tower.

The castle of Chinchón has a poor state of conservation. It is a shame, but 500 years are too many years!
