Inside, you will find Juan Pascual de Mena’s 18th-century painting Cristo de la Buena Muerte, sculptures by Benlliure, and paintings by Vincenzo Carducci and José Méndez. You will also see neo-Gothic lamps and elaborate stained-glass windows. Flash-free photography is permitted inside the church, so you can photograph the gilded altar and interior decorations.

  • The outside is striking, but the inside was a huge let down. Over the years, we have seem some questionable religious art, but rarely have we seen so much in one place. Most of it should be locked awa...  more »
  • We visit it because it was near the Prado museum and it look beautiful from the outside, but inside nothing special. Entrance was free on Saturday.  more »
  • Situated opposite the Prado we were enticed to go inside by the ornate facade, maybe we were tired after spending hours walking around the Prado but we thought the inside was only average.  more »

  • I have seen this church while visiting the nearby art gallery. I was very lucky because I came inside when nicely dressed people started to enter inside. I thought there might be some church concert but even better- the wedding :-) !!! I truly havent thought I could see a wedding during my visit of Madrid. It was beautiful!!! Beautiful wedding in a beautiful church!!
  • Beautiful church. Also you can find a Virgen de Guadalupe
  • Beautiful church inside and out. Not the biggest or the most spectacular in the city but it is quiet and peaceful.
  • Madrid is a special place in this planet wonna wish to visit one day
  • Nice place. Especially visually appealing at night.

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.
