Madrid

Full description

Only in the province of Madrid there are almost 1000 churches, of the most diverse styles, sizes and ages. Gothic style, with paintings of the XIX century or see "the Sistine of Madrid" is something that we can see in a tour of the middle town. Of the 983 that are in the province, I selected the most iconic, representative by construction style, the oldest and those that hold more stories to tell. Route We start with the famous "Sistine of Madrid" located in the Malasaña neighborhood. The Church of San Francisco de los Alemanes is one of those places that if you see them from the outside, you cannot imagine how incredible it is inside. In the neighborhood next to it, there is the Church of Santa Bárbara, one of the most elegant churches in the city and which used to house the Convento de las Salesas Reales. Right next to the Prado Museum, we will see the only Gothic style church in the city. The Parochial Church of San Jerónimo el Real, more than 500 years old. In the neighborhood of La Latina, camouflaged between buildings, is the Collegiate Church of San Isidro, one of the patrons of the city. Then, going down through the neighborhood, we will see one of the must-see sights of Madrid. The Royal Basilica of San Francisco el Grande and its dome 33 meters in diameter. A show. And finally: the Cathedral of Madrid, dedicated to the patron saint of the city, Almudena. Here the tour can end or continue with the visit to the dome and see the city from above.
