  • To be burned the Church of St Andrew in 1936, the parish moved to this Chapel, as still seen in the inscription on the entrance arch. After 40 years closed by works and rehabilitation, the chapel can be visited again. The Colegio Santa Barbara, attached to the Chapel, repeats the decoration of the facade, but it is a building of the 20th century, which occupies the site of the former Palace of the Vargas, one of the main families of Madrid, Lords of San Isidro and to which belonged to the Bishop of Plasencia, Gutierre de Vargas y Carvajal, promoter of the Chapel built by his father Francisco de Vargas and Medina, who also built the Palace of Vargas in the entrance of the Casa de Campo, sold to Felipe II in 1562, one year after this moved the capital of Spain to Madrid. To see the dimensions and orientation with respect to the Church of San Andrés, which was terraced, recommend Google Maps mode 'Land'. The chapel's interior can also be see with Street View to appreciate the altarpiece and the cenotaphs of the Bishop, his father and his mother, made in Alabaster, but nothing compared with a guided tour.

  • The chapel of the Bishop of Plasencia (Capilla del Obispo) is a religious building from the 16th century, located in Madrid. It refers to the moment of transition of the Gothic style to the style of the Renaissance, especially distinguishable on the north façade of the Chapel and in internal furnish. Capilla del Obispo is one of the few examples of Gothic architecture existing in Madrid before our time. The Chapel is part of the parish of St. Andrew.
