17TH CENTURY AUGUSTINIAN CONVENT
Founded by the Lords of Chinchón in the 17th c., this former Augustinian convent protects its monumental heritage in that of the old quarter of Chinchón, with its emblematic Plaza Mayor. In this framework, the cypress trees, roses and privets of the garden offer a beautiful picture, with the addition of a splendid cloister and softened by the blue of its swimming pool.
Walls with a Renaissance stamp, large windows and vaults, classical and Castilian style furniture, and its pleasant, spacious bedrooms make up the inner space, which is characterized by an atmosphere of peace and quiet. The dining room offers `sopa de ajo` (garlic soup), suckling pig and roast lamb and the typical `cocido madrileño` (Madrid-style garbanzo bean stew).
What to eat...
Come by either of the Parador´stwo restaurants: `El Convento` and `El Bodegón`.
El Convento offers exquisite creations based on traditional cooking, with a personal touch. We recommend the Tasting Menu and dishes prepared using quality products from the Chinchón river valley.
El Bodegón, open weekends and holidays, offers theme-based cuisine, with two tempting types of seasonal fare: El Cocido completo de Taba (Taba chickpea and sausage stew served in two courses) based on an original recipe from the late 19th century, and La Cocina de la Vega, which features dishes prepared according to traditional, age-old recipes from the Chinchón river valley."
HOW TO GET THERE:
Chinchón is 60 km from Madrid along the N-IV, at the junction with the main 404 road, through Ciempozuelos. Another option is the A-3 dual carriageway, near the Puente de Arganda, linking up with the M-311 road.
