A tour around the places where our history unfolded, evocative sites of events marking the present and which, today, have become attractive destinations - not only from an historical point of view, but as ideal spots to relax whilst immersing oneself in nature.
This is, without doubt, a tour around the rich heritage housed in what was once declared the very Loyal and Noble town of Chinchón by Felipe V. Aranjuez is just a few kilometres away. This Royal Spot, declared "World Heritage cultural site", is a palace and fertile plain.
The idyllic spot has, since the time of the Catholic Monarchs, been chosen as a holiday residence for Spanish monarchs. La Isla Gardens, the Palace and El Príncipe Gardens are just some of the unmissable stops. Just a stone's throw from Chinchón, Madrid offers all the attractions of the capital of Spain.
The beautiful palace, gardens, fountains and the interesting Glass Museum at the National Glass Centre make for the perfect excuse to stay at the Parador.
The many rambling routes around the Sierra de Guadarrama leaving from La Granja or Valsaín are further highlights. Do not forget to stop by the Spa during your stay at the Parador.
The Plaza Mayor, bridge, city walls, the Royal Monastery of Clara, the Church Museum of San Antolín, San Pedro, San Juan, Santiago and Santamaria churches, the "Casa del Tratado" or Treaty house and the many houses and palaces are highlights in town. Valladolid with its Contemporary Art Museum, Science Museum, Plaza Mayor and many other attractions lies nearby.
