(4.1/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Directly next to the entrance of the museo del Prado, you see it from underneath and you feel inclined to visit. Free entrance, beautiful decorations, stained glass Windows and the altar. The external staircase. Worth a quick visit

  • Located in the area of retirement with a privileged view of the Prado Museum, is a Christian Temple, old convent, part of it annexed to the Prado Museum. If you're walking from the main building of the Museo del Prado to the Cason del Buen Retiro, you'll find it next to the Royal Spanish Academy of language.

  • Simple Church, but of much beauty, built on a higher region, gets even more beautiful with night lighting. Located next to the Prado Museum.
