Basilica de San Miguel, Madrid

4.3
Basilica de San Miguel, a mid-18th century Roman Catholic church, serves as both an important architectural site and significant place of worship. A National Artistic Monument, its striking convex facade is rare in Spain and features statues of charity, faith, hope, and fortitude alongside a panel depicting the martyrdom of the children Justo and Pastor. Enter inside to discover the richly decorated interior, home to bright gilding, painted ceilings, wood sculptures, and a large organ. The holy children can be spotted again in a fresco from 1745, this time depicting their apotheosis.

  • Excellent basilica. To see it on the outside, you get an idea of how it is. Will pay to enter is presented within a wide range of other tourist sites. That are of general interest. It is especially recommended for people interested in religious tourism
