  1. Chirche Day of traditions, this is a wonderful weekend, we have been to this event twice and enjoyed all of the variety of things to see and do. well worth a trip. If in Chirche try the Mirador for a meal it is a great restaurant at the top of the village

  2. The Mirador de Chirche is usually closed on Saturdays. Maybe they will have a special opening for the Fiesta, I would check in advance if you are thinking of walking up to it from the village, it’s a heck of a climb.

  3. You don’t need to read the Spanish on the poster because the information is in English in the post!
