Basilica de San Miguel, Madrid

(4.7/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This church in the Centre of Madrid is a good example of Baroque art. Beautiful inside and out.

  • Located in the Madrid de los Austrias, the Pontifical Basilica of San Miguel is a church with a beautiful convex, unique in the Madrid Baroque façade and undeniable Italian influences. It was built between 1739 and 1745 and has been declared a national historic-artistic monument. Despite the many times that I've gone ahead, never I found it open, while in theory it opens every day morning and evening. Let us hope that the next time there will be more lucky.

  • Small church that despite its size is an important contribution to Spanish Baroque style, only in Madrid for the particular side convex shape. To see. If you want to click on '' Thanks Michele R ''
