    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dans les boutiques l'on trouve deux produits spécifiques de Chinchon:
    Le pastis de Chinchon qui est une aguardiente à base d'anis de qualité matalhuga.
    Cette fabrication est très ancienne dans la ville et déjà attestée par des documents de 1700 mentionnant une fabrique royale d'anis.
    La qualité du produit est attestée par une Dénomination Géographique de Chinchon.
    Il y a trois types de pastis: l' anís doux de 35º, l' anís sec entre 40º et 50º et l' anís sec spécial de 70º.
    L'autre spécialité est l'ail cultivé depuis les années 1700 dans les champs autour de Chinchon.
    --------------------------------------------
    Various shops offer the two specialities of Chinchon:
    The anis liquor based on aguardiente in which anis seeds are macerated.
    This preparation goes back to 1700 where there was a Real Fábrica de Aníses in Chinchon. The quality is submitted to the rules of a "Denominacion Geográfica de Chinchon".
    There are three types of anis liquor: anís dulce at 35º, anís seco at 40º - 50º and anís seco especial at 70º alcohol.

    Handicrafts

    There are many shops where you can find nice local handicraft (especially pottery and handicrafts made of wood ).
    There is a quite odd bakery, where handicrafts are made of bread!!!!

    Hay muchos comercios en donde se pueden encontrar preciosas artesanía locales (especialmente cerámicas y tallas en madera).
    Hay una panadería bastante extraña, en donde hacen artesanías con pan!!!

    Walking around in the village you will pass along some special shops. In this bakery they make some figurative and artistic bread as well as the normal ones.
    Take a look and buy something to try!
