  • Beautiful old style church with amazing paintings and awe inspiring statues!
  • One of the traditional churches of Madrid, the rites and celebrations very outdated and traditionalist both by age and manner of preaching of priests, and by the age of the audience that attends masses.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.

  • The Church of Carmen is a place in Madrid. It is small but cozy. It is all that remains of the Carmelite convent. Account with an image of the Virgen del Carmen, is home of a brotherhood so during Holy week you can visit the steps (Andalusian style). The interior is Baroque

  • This is another of the Madrid baroque churches that seem to not enforce anything on the outside and have its substance when you come inside. It is headquarters of a brotherhood so during Holy week you can visit the steps (Andalusian style). The interior is Baroque and good, but it is needed, at a minimum, of a coat of paint.
