  • Worth the visit. In Madrid. Such history and sanctity in this church of San Carmen. Among many churches to see while here!  more »
  • A beautiful church with a cosy interior... which would highlight the very beautiful images of the Virgin of Carmen with the child Jesus in his arms and the Christ lying:

  • The Church of Nuestra Señora del Carmen and San Luis Obispo is an architectural marvel of Baroque art. Both the exterior and the interior are very interesting. Highlights inside, wrought iron balconies and boxes. Also, a sculpture of Christ lying.

  • One of the traditional churches of Madrid, the rites and celebrations very outdated and traditionalist both by age and manner of preaching of priests, and by the age of the audience that attends masses. Candles that can be put to the Virgen del Carmen, make sure the interior is blackened and looking more aging.

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.
