Chinchón

Chinchón

Chinchon is located in the southeast of Madrid Community, 44 kilometers (28 Miles) away from the capital city.

The special geographical condition next to the Tajuña River, has promoted human settlement since ancient times.

The town of Chinchón, in addition to the historical and artistic attractions, keep alive their traditions, and offers visitors with a number of festivals and events.

In 1498 the villagers of Chinchón were “moved” to the top of the nearest hill due to infection of mosquitoes, thereby resulting in a total reconstruction of the village.

The Plaza Mayor is irregular because at that time, the main squares had a round shape so that the villagers who lived in the Plaza Mayor, could see their cattle without leaving home (from the balcony).

Today these balconies, are mostly the terraces of nice cozy restaurants.

Chinchón was declared a Historic-Artistic site in 1974. The town centre provides us with images of other centuries like, wooden balconies, narrow streets, typical arcades, churches, monasteries, chapels and two castles.
