Discover The Lope de Vega theatre in Chinchón Spain

Located between the clock tower and the church of Nuestra Senora de la Asuncion, the superb theatre of Lope de Vega was built in 1891 by the Societad de Cosecheros (Society of Winemakers), and is sometimes used as a cinema. The old-fashioned decoration, inside and out, is simply astounding. The emblematic Plaza Mayor of Chinchón is painted on the stage curtains. The playwright, Lope de Vega, often came to Chinchón to stage his plays in this theatre, which was known at the time as the Palace of Chinchón's Tales. This is where he wrote his comedy, El Blason de los Chaves de Villalba. It was formerly a palace before becoming a theatre in 1876.
