Parroquia Jesus de Medinaceli, Madrid
(3.7/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
View a historically significant 17th-century statue of Jesus at Parroquia Jesus de Medinaceli, 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 Catholic Basilica of our father Jesus de Medinacel (Parroquia Jesus de Medinaceli). The Temple stands on the site of a former monastery of the Theotokos incarnation. It is one of five basilicas, located in Madrid, and now it belongs to the community of Capuchin Friars. In 1922 year standing at this place the dilapidated building was demolished and in 1927 year here began to build new by the architect Jesús Carrasco-Muñoz Encina. Construction was completed in 1930 year.
