Jesus de Medinaceli Chuch, Madrid

4.2
View a historically significant 17th-century statue of Jesus at Jesus de Medinaceli Chuch, a Baroque-style Catholic church. Enter the elegant cathedral and climb the stairs to view the statue, created by artists in the School of Sevilla and originally transported to a Spanish fortress in Morocco. The piece was then captured by the Moors, ransomed by Trinitarian monks, and delivered to the church in 1682, where people now go to pray to its image. Many kiss the statue's feet after praying (and an employee dutifully wipes the surface after each kiss).

  • The Church inside is beautiful. But I complain because they used to be a temple of prayer outside of business hours Friday lift people who could not climb the stairs to pray closer to Jesus.no seems to me logical have made this trip from Albacete because we cannot go on Friday by a promise he had made MOM and is the only one that had to stay below praying because a saved #muy kindly # us informo to lift is used only on Friday.. .you seemed a little unfair

  • I had never been in this church and went with my wife that already had visited on two occasions the temple I thought it was normal, but I greatly impressed the likes of the Jesus of Medinaceli. When we climbed the stairs that are to the left of the main altar and arrived at the gate that separates visitors to Jesus, what vi all clear. There was a woman praying, it oozed faith everywhere, I guess that I would be giving thanks for some well received after pray and light a few candles, we said goodbye to Jesús of Medinaceli. We hope to return to Madrid and visit it again. Visit essential for all believers.

  • A beautiful example of a Christian catholic church. The architecture is nothing special, but the inside is really nice.
  • I do like Madrid's Plazas, and this is one of the nicer ones with it's well trimmed bushes and bright fountain in the centre. The Museo del Prado is also located in this Plaza. The only thing that lets the Plaza down is that it's hard to relax due to the loud traffic.
  • Enemies of the Church Neptune Fountain
  • Tight streets, but this place is dope!
  • Amazing!

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
