  • One of the jewels that keeps Chinchón is its castle, of the 14th century, and that being currently private property cannot be visited inside. The visit from the outside looks a good plant and medium surface Castle built in limestone, probably from Colmenar de Oreja (a close and beautiful town, with a beautiful arcaded square and a large church to visit). This castle, surrounded by a good pit, closed to the public today, was built by the counts of Chinchón and rebuilt 400 years later partly demolished and incenciado by Napoleonic troops, in their devastating raids throughout the nearby area. His last utility has been a famous distillate of Chinchón distillery. Ahead of the main entrance has a large Esplanade which apparently was built-in in your day to the enclosure of the Castle and is guarded by an outer wall.

  • The castle itself is nice from the outside. In I don't know how it is because we found it closed and it was Saturday at 13.00 ...

  • It can only be seen on the outside but is must-see if you pass by Chinchón. The castle is quite normal.
