  • We were lucky to visit Madrid while the celebrations for the Virgen de la Paloma were taking place. The area around La Latina was full of music, as well as food, drinks, and amusement stalls. On 15 Aug the procession was really beautiful, with many locals wearing typical costumes. We have visited Madrid many times and it was nice to discover yet another face of this wonderful city
  • Beautiful, romantic, spiritual !
  • They have refurbished it recently and now is simply beautiful. It is adapted so that they can enter wheelchair or baby strollers.

  • The Church of the Virgen de la Paloma is a building of neo-Mudéjar style which on its highest altar presides over the canvas of the Virgin of la Paloma, patron saint of firefighters in Madrid. The box weighs 80 kg and is 120 cm x 100 cm. Also, striking the baptistery or swimming pool baptismal cross with seven steps. In such a way that is baptized by immersion method. The Eucharistic table is located in the center of the temple, and banks are located around the Eucharistic table. August 15 is the Festival where firefighters hang off the table so that it can be venerated by the faithful and the consequent procession around the neighborhood.

  • This church is neo-Mudejar-style and its interior hosts nice details like the central atrium. It is not a special or architecturally interesting place but it has a rich history and if is very emblematic to locals, so I recommend to visit
