The building in the center of Madrid combines architectural simplicity with extravagant Baroque frescoes, statues, and ornaments.

  • 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.

  • 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  • One of the traditional churches of Madrid, the rites and celebrations very outdated and traditionalist both by age and manner of preaching of priests, and by the age of the audience that attends masses.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.
