  • This church looked very worn and simple on the outside, but on the inside, it was one of the most beautiful churches I've seen. The walls were filled with gold and decoration, and there were several small altars along the wall.

  • It is the great basilica of Madrid, for greatness, for its history, for services rendered. Madrid Cathedral until you finish the Almudena. The place where it is in the Centre of Madrid. Add a great visit to the capital.

  • Impressive basilica. One of the most beautiful cupolas in Spain (more than 30m in diameter). When inside, you can't help but feel belittled by such grandeur. The entrance is free but access to the museum will cost you a few Euros. A must-see if you are interested in breathtaking architecture.
  • There have been a handful of works of art that have moved me to tears. Upon entering this basilica, I was amazed at the beauty, the detail, and the energy that was put into its creation. Wow!
