Iglesia de San Anton Reviews
Iglesia de San Anton must be unique. It must be the only place on earth which does what it preaches. It is not huge or fancy. However the things the people in this church do are just amazing. They act... more »

During cold nights people are forced to sleep on the street from 11pm to 4am. They do not allow minors., If dogs. They take care of flats that you have to get up at 8am, go to bed at 11pm and give explanations of everything as if you were a minor. So, it's not all good.
This is the best church ever. It is a church where you enjoy a tea, a warm seat, share a football match with others and even a dinner. I would say it is a real social project by Padre Angel in the heart of the city surrounded by cozy places. Everyone is welcome to come inside and enjoy inside. Open 24 hours is a must in your visit to Madrid.
How many churches act as they preach?? This temple opens 24h/7, the priests and the volunteers here help homeless not only with shelter but also with phone chargers, breakfast, dinner, free wifi.. even medical back-up for homeless affected by severe illnesses such as Parkinson's. There is always hot coffee and water for people in need during harsh weather and especially a kind person listening to them. I would rate them 10 stars !!! Oh, and btw did you know Saint Valentine's bones are kept in this church?
