  • The huge façade of this Church of Madrid makes the traveller feel insignificant compared to the huge one. I think that was what the Catholic priests wanted when they ordered the construction of a temple. Construction, which began in the seventeenth century, lasted more than a hundred years, with many architects changing along the way, yet specialists cannot tell which part of them belongs to any part of the plan. In general, all the masterpieces of the Baroque church could have vanished into oblivion, because during the Civil War, the building was burned almost entirely. Only a long and laborious work of experienced restorers, allowed to restore the temple as it was before the destruction.

  • We are on the border between the barrio La Latina and the barrio Lavapiés, in the area of El Rastro, where the Sunday market takes place; the church is about 200/250 meters from the "La Latina" metro stop. Building erected in a long period of time, from the mid-1600s to the mid-1700s. Externally you are immediately attracted by the long baroque facade of the church, particularly elaborated at the 3 large arches that introduce to the portic, from which you then enter the interior. In fact, however, one does not immediately realize that it is in front of a church, as the exterior looks very much like that of a Baroque palace, and the 2 bell towers, not to mention the back dome, are hardly seen from the narrow street. The interior is bright and very wide (as you could guess from the long facade), divided into 3 aisles by large pillars. The white stucco decorations are simple (just more elaborate in the capitals of the pillars and in the arches), absent the frescoes and scarce canvases, while behind the main altar there is a large golden retablo and also the chapels have elaborate retabli and altars baroque shards in gilded wood. In general I must say that the church did not feel sorry for me. You could visit it on Sunday morning, pairing it with the visit of the nearby el Rastro flea market (we also heard the S.Messa, which I seem to remember that it is at 9.00).

  • A beautiful church.
  • This impressive Baroque church, located in the heart of Madrid, appears suddenly in one of the narrow streets of Footbath. The interior impresses, not only for its beauty, but for its height and size, dome included. Totally Baroque, has a Greek cross plant and several chapels and small altarpieces on the sides The main altar, even without being impressive due to its low illumination, does not detract from the rest of the temple. Curious visit If you are in the area.
