  • 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.

  • The chapel was built by family Vargas, parents of the Bishop of Plasencia, to save the remains of San Isidro. A few years ago passed into the hands of heritage thanks to the generosity of Doña Cayetana De Alba, that all they asked was that you could visit and give out. I have had the luck of meeting in the week of the architecture thanks to Madrid seduces. I could not be in a profession religious, it seems worthwhile, since lamb nuns sing very well.
