Church Historic Site
San Jerónimo el Real is a 16th-century Roman Catholic church used historically for royal ceremonies, where Madrid’s elite still holds their weddings. The church's facade is intricately decorated in a neo-Gothic style. 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.
