  The garlic salesman
by andal13

Chinchón has a very particular character: the garlics salesman. Sat on his chair, this old man works with garlics, chilipeppers and other stuff inside an odd room. He is the most famous person in town, and he is very proud of the pictures every tourist takes him.
You can buy some aromatic garlics there, and after that, go to a very particular bakery across the circus; there you will find dolls, family shields and lots of things made of bread!!!

(If you want more info, you can check my Chinchón travel page.)

Chinchón tiene un personaje muy particular: el vendedor de ajos. Sentado en su silla, este viejito trabaja con ajos, pimientos y otras cosas dentro de una habitación muy particular. Es la persona más famosa del pueblo, y está muy orgulloso de las fotos que los turistas le sacan. Puedes comprar algunos ajos perfumados allí, y luego ir a la panadería que queda al otro lado de la plaza, y allí encontrarás muñecos, escudos familiares y todo tipo de objetos hechos de pan.
