Currently the facade goes unnoticed when you go there and to enter you need to visit with the nuns who then ask for the will.
Bellissima chiesa dedicata al martire messinese San Placido il cui luogo di culto si conserva ancora oggi nella Citta dello Stretto. more »Beautiful church dedicated to the martyr maiden San Placido whose place of worship is still preserved today in the city of the Strait.
A Monastery that occupies an entire block in the neighborhood of Malasaña in which they inhabit a community of very small and very old Benedictine nuns. The Altarpiece of the church is a true jewel, a work of art among many others that houses this place but that remains closed to lime and singing almost all day, it is almost impossible to visit even the church for worship, it is a disgrace that these communities Benedictines have the patrimony of all for their exclusive use and enjoyment, it is the contemplative life in which they pray for the world without doing anything else, surrounded by luxury and works of art vetoed to the rest of mortals, it seems that I speak of the Middle Ages and the name of the Rose , but it happens in the 21ST century in the center of Madrid
Benedictine Convent of San Plácido was founded by Teresa Valle de la Cerda in 1623 and built by the architect Fray Lorenzo de San Nicolás between 1641 and 1661. Of Its interior stands out the main altarpiece with the Annunciation of Claudio Coello, the frescoes of its cupola and central nave. The famous Cristo de Velázquez was housed in its sacristy, which is currently located in the Prado Museum. It is Also famous for hosting under its roofs two events, one related to the diabolical possession of twenty-five of its nuns and the other by its clock since its bells imitate the touch of deceased which was a gift of Philip IV. His church remains closed and only opens in hours of worship.
