  • Very cool from the front, the arches are quite pleasing to the eye.
  • A beautiful church that is in keeping with the splendor of the palace.
  • Copy and paste the wiki: the Church of San Antonio de Aranjuez (Madrid, Spain) is a temple of baroque design. Ferdinand VI of Spain ordered the construction of a chapel dedicated to San Antonio de Padua, on the South side of the main square which gives access to the actual site that should replace the Oratory of times of Felipe IV of Spain. This Chapel would serve the people and the monarchy. It began to be built in 1752 and its author was Santiago Bonavia. Charles III of Spain sent to expand the Chapel, incorporating a large piece with gable roof. Description [edit] the temple is formed by a central plant of circular geometric outwardly embraced by an arcaded Gallery five semi-circular arches decorated with Tuscan pilasters and bleachers, as auction facade facing South from the square of the same name. The body of the Church is structured at the same time in height by two levels of balustrade of stonework, one as top of the Gallery's access forming a first Terrace level, emphasizing its central main axis a frontispiece and corners four slender pinnacles with pyramidal shape, while another level of balustrade, as a crowning of the cylindrical central body is topped in its centre by a shield with the Royal arms also in stonework and elongated pineapples outstanding following the pace of the drop panels balustrade modules. Above this level, the cover of the central body is formed by a spherical dome window system of clamping and cylindrical central lantern of important dimensions topped by a dome window shape of onion and central Pinnacle. Galleries of arcs that unite through arcades this chapel with the Casa de Infantes on one side and on the other with Knights and trades, houses were built after dying Bonavia in 1767 being greater than the Real Jaime Marquet site architect. The construction is of brick factory, except in hollows and cornices which Colmenar stone and lead covers
