The Church of Our Lady of the Assumption in Chinchón Spain
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The Church of Our Lady of the Assumption in Chinchón

Next to the theatre of Lope de Vega, the church Nuestra Senora de la Asuncion, built between 1534 and 1626, is home to a small treasure: an altar piece adorned with the "Assumption of the Virgin", a large painting (approximately 3x2m) painted in 1812 by Francisco de Goya himself, as a gift to his brother Camilo, who was the chaplain of the church from 1783 until his death. Goya was a frequent visitor to Chinchón and particularly enjoyed painting on the main square. The church was set on fire by Napoleon's troops in 1808 and restored in 1828. It is often locked, so don't hesitate to enquire at the tourist office located in the Plaza Mayor about a guided tour of the church of Nuestra Senora de la Asuncionin. A fascinating church, it was built in the Renaissance style, but also has Baroque, Gothic and Plateresque influences.
