Parroquia Jesus de Medinaceli, Madrid

(3.8/5 based on 45+ 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).

  • It's a small but emotional paroquia where the celebrate Jesus of Medinaceli, favorite of the nobility. You can access his dressing room and appreciate the natural hair of Jesus. It is very beautiful and gives a special peace to Christians.

  • The building itself does not attract me particularly, but is a place with a special atmosphere and you go when you go always find people. In Madrid and in other parts of Spain there is a devotion special toward the Christ of Medinaceli, Christ that is found in this sanctuary. The first Friday of every month is when more people go to visit him. In lent, there is another Friday, not memory which is, that it is impossible to enter because the queue of people waiting to see him is endless. There is also, a chapel, a Virgen de Las Candelas with a child Jesus having wealth of offerings hanging from his body. The visit is free.
