  • The only church in Madrid built completely in the neo Byzantine style. It is located on calle de Alcalà, in front of the north side of the Retiro Park and at the Retiro metro stop. Very pleasant exterior, in which stands out the large dome, low and wide as that of the mosques. Entering you are impressed by the rich Byzantine mosaic decorations of the vaults, the apse and the dome. while the walls are neoclassical, with great profusion of marbles. The church has a Greek cross plan, but in fact all the interior space falls under the large dome, as the arms of the cross, represented by the apse, the 2 transects and the nave are really short. The 2 (and unique) chapels feature elaborate Carrara marble altars (and the same marble are the statues of the main altar); In the chapel of dx are present, on the sides of the statue of San Benito, topped by a column with on top the statue of an angel, the tombs of the founders of the church: Manuel Caviggioli and Benita Maurici. The chapel on the sx side is dedicated to Santa Rita. The building's many partially colored windows make the interior very bright. The church has large opening hours: from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.; SS. Masses are at 8.30 and 8 p.m. holidays are at 10.30am, 11.30am, 1.30pm, 7pm and 8pm.
