Iglesia de Nuestra Senora del Carmen y San Luis, Madrid

4.3
Just minutes away from Puerta del Sol, the 17th-century Iglesia de Nuestra Senora del Carmen y San Luis is the only surviving part of the Carmelite convent that once stood here. The building in the center of Madrid combines architectural simplicity with extravagant Baroque frescoes, statues, and ornaments. While the exterior is quite unassuming, on the inside you can admire the works of some of Spain's most celebrated Baroque painters, such as Juan Sanchez Barba and Antonio de Pereda.

  • Iglesia Du Nuestra Senora Del Carmen Y San Luis is a beautiful ancient looking church we passed on our way to Plaza Del Carmen and what a great find. The church is old,16th century, the bare brickwork...  more »
  • That's right, it dates back to the sixteenth century and is what remains of the old convent of Carmen.Initially it was dedicated to San Dámaso but it is called del Carmen because it was the initiative of the Carmelites.It is worth entering and taking some photos.

  • I have never been more impressed by a parish church before. The man overseeing the opening (I don’t know if was the priest or another member) showed such compassion to the beggar and his dog who occupied the front steps during our stay at an apartment across the street. And, the family alters were stunning. This parish church was not listed in any of our tourist materials, but it is well worth visiting.
  • Beautiful historical church with kind priests. The masses & homilies are wonderful.
