Does anyone know the dates for the August fiesta in Chinchon this year?

Check this site Paul...

http://www.softdoc.es/guia_madrid/excursiones/chinchon.html

It seems to be up to date, and gives the dates for the Fiesta of the Patron Virgin de Gracia y San Roque as the 15 to 21 of August.

Saints days in Spain dont normally change so its a safe bet they will be the same even if the information is out of date.

Yep nice to see you Paul LOL

I went to the ayuntamiento web site and they show all the festivals. Maybe they did not answer LOL, but they had published later.. or maybe it is just at the spanish site...

The mayor one is from the 12 till the 18th august as Stacy said, but as many cities and villagues in Spain the 25th of July for Santiago Apostol is festival but only for the weekend.

Back to Spain? .... When are you coming south?? again.. hehehe

The garlic salesman

by andal13

The most famous inhabitant of Chinchón probably is this old man, who sales garlics, peppers, herbs, at Plaza Mayor. He is a gentle person, and he is very proud of his collection of photos taken by tourists.

El habitante más famoso de Chinchón probablemente es este viejito, que vende ajos, pimientos, hierbas aromáticas, en la Plaza Mayor. Es un señor muy amable, que está muy orgulloso de su colección de fotos que le han sacado los turistas.

Encierros de Chinchon - Bulls in the streets

by breughel

Upon arrival in Chinchon we were surprised to see along the avenue Generalisimo, where stands the Parador, strong wooden barriers leading to the Plaza Mayor.
There is a tradition in Chinchon, similar to the one of Pamplona (ref. my tip), to have bulls running in the street towards the Plaza. This is called "encierro".
The bulls "torros" are followed by shepherds and helpers and led by six "cabestros" oxes. The distance is only about 300 m, so let's consider it as a mini Pamplona. Young amateurs are then allowed to "fight" one of the bulls inside the ring
These encierro's happen during the fiestas of the Virgin at mid-August.

As we were in Chinchon en September we didn't see them but the barriers were still on the street.

Castillo de los Condes

by Redang

El Castillo de los Condes (the Counts' Castle) was built at the end of the 17th century and destroyed after an attack of los Comuneros in 1.520. The castle of nowadays was built over the remains of the former one.

Visit Plaza Mayor (you can even park there!)

by gmg61

Chinchon is a rural pueblo 40 km south-east of Madrid, not far from Aranjuez. About 5.000 persons live in this village standing on a hill and surrounded by olive trees and fields: a fascinating yet harsh grey and ochre landscape.
Settled as agricultural town by the Romans, in the XV century Chinchon was granted the category of “Villa” borough by Henry IV and his “landlord” was honoured with the title of Count by the king Charles V.

This is the time when the landmark and highlight of this pueblo was built: Plaza Mayor a classic Mediaeval square of popular architecture, an irregular shaped (roughly circular) plaza, surrounded by a simple, clear, ordered and hierarchical structure formed by a series of three-storey buildings, with flat galleries and 234 wooden balconies, called "claros", supported by upright feet with shoes.
It’s a really beautiful spot: beautiful sight of this harmonic square (it reminds me a very similar plaza, in Lucca, Italy) surrounded by shaded galleries and restaurant where madrilenos love to go because of the rich and varied recipes.

This square has been used in the past for countless activities: royal fiestas, proclamations, plays, bullfighting on horseback, bullfights, executions, mystery plays, religious, political and military acts, films and many others. Nowadays it’s still occasionally used for corridas (bullfights) - even if there is a big streetlamp just in the middle of the square - but it’s main destination is….parking lot!
Believe it or not, when you arrive in the village and step towards Plaza Mayor youe expectation si to visit a fascinating, calm, charming place. The plaza itself is really beautiful, but all those cars parked on the sand really destroy every magic!
