Plaza Mayor de Chinchon. Beautiful square in Chinchon. This is one of my favorite places to visit in Spain. When we were here at the noon for lunch in July, it was quiet, it was siesta. The Plaza Mayor is a very attractive shape square surrounded by all restaurants and bars in 3-4 stories houses. There's one restaurant named Goya. The wooden frames in the houses are not perfect, but it looks very natural.
Really old place , beautiful and not perfect is perfect ♥️ I haven’t tried the food around here yet, next time :)
