  • Why is it not more known? With the history of the origins of the cities, beautiful models, the well where the patron saint of the city realized his first miracle, paintings of Goya... In addition the entry is not paid! It's not very big and the visit will not take more than an hour. Really surprising and awesome. Kind and caring personal

  • It is a free municipal museum that is known for having within the well in which San Isidro made a miracle. This building a bit tells the origins of madrid, through a series of objects and models. It is interesting to visit

  • Next to the building is the Iglesia de San Andres. This museum is plenty spectacular. Anecdotes (1) ' El Milagro del Pozo Wells ' miracle... I began to increase water from her mother's arms still Isidro's baby son in the wells fell Isidro and his wife by the side of the well to pray start and pull my son from the bottom, or Assistant. Just anecdotes (2) Isidro morning mass in all the churches of Madrid takes, there is no appearance that ploughing of the occupation. However field work every day after work. It saw Isidro is not suspicious I thought one day, her husband went to the field, and what there is to pull the cultivation machines and cattle, are angels on the other side. A small chapel dedicated to the Saint Isidro devoted prayer.

  • Not too big but is free and interesting
  • Not much to see.
  • Beautiful Museum of the origins of Madrid (also called Museum of San Isidro). Every corner is worthwhile but if you had to choose I would stay with its garden, where through the history of Madrid through its Botany, and store, place in which are stacked neatly countless pieces worthy of being observed

  • STOP 3.-PLAZA DE SAN ANDRÉS: MUSEUM OF SAN ISIDRO. On the way to the Plaza de Carros, it is worthwhile to stop at the jewelery and ornament shop "of stone", in The No. 10 of the street of the almond tree. Its facade is constructed from black slate, and can be observed areas of network color Due to the oxidation of the slate
