Basilica de San Miguel, Madrid

4.3
Basilica de San Miguel, a mid-18th century Roman Catholic church, serves as both an important architectural site and significant place of worship. A National Artistic Monument, its striking convex facade is rare in Spain and features statues of charity, faith, hope, and fortitude alongside a panel depicting the martyrdom of the children Justo and Pastor. Enter inside to discover the richly decorated interior, home to bright gilding, painted ceilings, wood sculptures, and a large organ. The holy children can be spotted again in a fresco from 1745, this time depicting their apotheosis.

  • Small baroque church in the center of Madrid. Very particular curved facade with several frescoes.

  • Beautiful church. The only saint painted with dark hides. Just Unfordivel! The San Miguel market is just behind.

  • Worked on duty here during the European Taizé meeting - it’s a lovely church
  • Enter quietly. A few times per day a mass is served.
