  • This plaza was a bull ring. Very interesting history. People would sit on the balconies to watch the bullfight.

  • This place will elicit a 'wow' on first glance. You are gripped by several factors. There is the downward slope. There is the dominance of a lighter shade of green. Finally, there are three storey...

  • Chinchon can be visited in around 2 hours or even less. The plaza Mayor is for sure the most iconic place of the city with the narrow balconies where some restaurants have tables. Even on a Monday...

  • Plaza Mayor de Chinchon. Beautiful square in Chinchon. This is one of my favorite places to visit in Spain. When we were here at the noon for lunch in July, it was quiet, it was siesta. The Plaza Mayor is a very attractive shape square surrounded by all restaurants and bars in 3-4 stories houses. There's one restaurant named Goya. The wooden frames in the houses are not perfect, but it looks very natural.
  • Really old place , beautiful and not perfect is perfect ♥️ I haven’t tried the food around here yet, next time :)
  • A very beautiful and old "Plaza" in a little and quaint town not too far from Madrid. The circular shape of the plaza gives the feel of an old theater and the wooden balconies that overlook it just add to this. It's a charming place that is well worth the visit. I went there after new year and it felt a bit deserted. Luckily a couple of restaurants were open and I managed to grab a delicious meal.
  • One of the oldest squares in Spain. Has its authentical medieval charm. But really lots of people
  • Nice place, normally a men have many danky for sharing great experience with kids, but we have not found him twice unfortunately
