Description

This place –only 45 minutes outside Madrid– invites visitors to experience the events that marked the history of this town in an entertaining way.

Once again this year, visitors can enjoy the history of Chinchón through this original itinerary. In a pleasant stroll through the cobbled streets of the town, various actors offer the chance to "meet" the famous painter Don Francisco de Goya, and to converse with the discoverer of quinine (a widely-used substance in medicine) and with other key figures. This option can be enjoyed in combination with a visit to the exhibition entitled "Treasures of the Cloister" at weekends between 12 October and 8 December, which opens the doors of the Monastery of La Purísima Concepción in Chinchón and reveals items that have been sequestered within its walls for over three centuries.
