  • It is a free Tower nowadays because it apparently belonged to a church, which was ravaged by the French Horde that invaded Spain in the early 19th, and destroyed large part of our national heritage in general and of Chinchón in particular. It is located on a terrace from where you can see fantastic views of the town.

  • The tower which we observe today was that of the Church of our Lady of grace, built during the 15th century. In 1808, during the invasion of the French troops, the Church was burned, as most of the monuments of the town, staying in single foot tower. Discarded the reconstruction of the church because of the great deterioration of remains that had been preserved and the lack of economic viability, in 1856 it was decided to restore the Tower, changing the ancient capital of slate and lead by the current roof. The clock that we see today was installed two years later. Currently, it remains closed and we can only see the outside. However, it is worth approaching as that from the viewpoint that there is to it, you can see beautiful views of the population and the Plaza Mayor. In addition, if we have good luck, we are even able to find open Church of the assumption.
