So close and so far

Chinchón is a small and picturesque village close to Madrid, but at the same time, far from the big city; here you can feel the atmosphere of 16th century. Probably is the most charming village of Provincia de Madrid, and a complete "off the beaten path" destination.

Chinchón is un pintoresco pueblito cercano a Madrid, pero al mismo tiempo, parece estar muy lejos de la gran ciudad; aquí se puede sentir la atmósfera del siglo XVI. Probablemente es la villa más encantadora de la Provincia de Madrid, y completamente alejada del camino trillado.

    I'll bet that garlic salesman has no problem with too many people crowding him all the time.

    Garlic for luck? Everytime I eat garlic I am rather alone then lucky - what do I wrong?

    The Virgin of Assumption? Can you tell how to distinguish between her and the Virgin of Presumption?

    This village is definitely worth a day trip from Madrid, if only to visit the famous celebrity "Garlic Salesman." ;-) Very charming town!
