Manzanares to Chinchón

Before leaving Manzanares this morning we went into the center of town to a cell phone store to buy new charging plugs.

The drive north to Chinchón took almost two hours. As we arrived at the Parador we discovered they were shooting a movie or TV show right in front of the Parador. The scene being shot involved a bride arriving in a Cadillac, at the church, for her wedding. The costumes were elaborate and colorful. We walked through the bustle to the Parador and checked in, them spent some time watching all the activity.

The Chinchón Parador is built in a former convent. We had our welcome drinks and played some cards. Later we went out to explore Chinchón.

As we were walking to dinner the movie crew was packing up.

For dinner we went back to the Plaza Mayor and had an excellent meal at a restaurant called Restaurante la Balconada.
