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).

  • I am member of the arch confraternity of Jesus of Medinaceli in Avila. Be Member means many things remaining for me; Why have the opportunity to see a carving of the sculptural category as Jesús of Medinaceli in his parish in Madrid was something exceptional. When look at the image is something that is for one. From the architectural point of view the parish, the Church is fairly well, presiding at the top the image of Jesus. I recommend it so if you are a believer or not because it is much worth see the image at the top.
