    For religious tourism, say that it is one of the several Basilicas of the city. It is one of the oldest patron of the Villa. For the curious tourist, is the Pantheon of illustrious men.

    The current building was opened in December 1951. Our Lady of Atocha is considered the patron saint of Spanish royalty. It is possibly the oldest Virgin in Madrid.

    The Royal Basilica of our Lady of Atocha is in the southwestern part of the Centre of Madrid close to the Atocha train station. She is one of a total of six basilicas in the city. The basilica was destroyed in the Spanish civil war and rebuilt until 1951. In front of the entrance we have looked at yet a monument. The Church itself is kept rather simple by design. We well liked the area with the figure above the altar and beautiful stained-glass Windows. Otherwise nothing stands out especially, what the visitors from Madrid would necessarily have seen.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
