“Worth a trip to see this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

This square is superb! It goes back to Moorish times, but is now essential and traditional Castille. With it's ring of green paited balconies it becomes a bull ring at times (again, after bull fighting was abolished!). There is an ancient fountain in the middle, and the old church and houses circles the square. loads of restaurants and places to pop into. Don't miss the Tourist office and the ancient outside communal laundry water basins.

“typical spanish plaza mayor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013

Loved the place! It was truly a cultural experience to realize how this plaza is used for corridas and for the theatre. Worth a visit and the locals are amazingly nice.

“Easter weekend celebration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013

We loved this town. The plaza was alive with Spanish vacationers as they celebrated Easter. We were the only Americans there so it felt really authentic. The town was filled with people, a burro train, and entertainment. There are plenty of places to eat and shop. Enjoy the day there and spend the night at Terrazas.

“One of the world's great town plazas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013

With a feel that's part Siena, part Taos Pueblo and part Marrakesh, the Plaza Mayor de Chinchon exudes life. Its rustic balconies, unpaved surface and irregular form encourage you to just enjoy yourself. There's plenty of room for restaurants, bars, donkey rides and tourists snapping photos, without anyone getting lost or in each others' way.
