  • Next to the Prado Museum and it can be accessed directly from the Museum using the stairs. I could not enjoy much of since inside two times I went the two threw me because they were going to close. It was possibly more important in times past than at present, remember that among others Juan married the ex-King Carlos I. perhaps it is more interesting to see her outside, illuminated especially at night, than inside.

  • The parish of San Jerónimo real is known as "Los Jeronimos", and was one of the most important monasteries of Madrid. What was originally the cloister we find embedded now in the Museo del Prado and is popularly known as "Moneo's cube". The Church is located just behind the Prado Museum and, while standing in the queue from the input "Puerta de Los Jeronimos", there will definitely happen to see it. Thanks for reading my review.
